Economics PhD talk

An informal session for those considering further study for a PhD in Economics

An informal session has been arranged for those considering further study for a PhD in Economics. This may be of particular interest to students on MSc programmes in Economics, although all interested students and Alumni are welcome to attend.

At this event, academics / researchers in the Economics Division will discuss what makes a good research proposal for a PhD in Economics; discuss the research journey from start to finish; and elaborate on what a career as an academic economist might entail.

A number of former MSc Economics / MSc Economics and Finance students -- now at different stages of the PhD journey -- will be available to offer their personal perspectives on this choice; discuss how they put together a successful PhD proposal; and explain more about how they applied for research funding. 

Light refreshments will be provided at this event.

Due to the limited number of places available, advance registration is required.
