PhD Programme

The School of Economics at the University of Surrey enjoys a strong and growing reputation for its research. It receives full recognition from the Economic and Social Research Council for research training as part of the South East Network for Social Sciences and attracts excellent research students. The School of Economics runs a full-time four-year MRes+PhD programme. The first year (MRes) is dedicated to core courses in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Econometrics. The second year provides specialized training in several areas of economics and econometrics, both from theoretical and empirical perspectives. The last two years are dedicated to independent research, under the guidance of a supervisor and a co-supervisor. At the end, the student will submit a dissertation that is examined by viva voce and lends itself to the publication of papers in highly rated peer reviewed journals. Within the school a number of research students are attached to SEEC doing interesting and important research in the energy and environment area.
