The Department of Economics is committed to excellence in research and teaching.
Within the faculty, there is expertise and international reputation in a significant number of areas of economics. We also engage in projects with international organisations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank, the United Nations (UN) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
Our postgraduate MSc and PhD Economics programmes are accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the leading research council for Social Sciences in the UK, and we currently rank first in the UK for attracting the best qualified AAB+ students to our Economics programmes.
Our PhD programme trains the next generation of economists. Our PhD students form a vibrant community and are integrated into a stimulating research environment, pursuing research of international excellence.
