PhD programme

What is Economics?
At Nottingham, economists analyse issues such as economic development, international trade and public policy, including health, labour markets, food and the environment, the macroeconomy and the European Union. The University also has research specialisms in economic theory and econometrics. 
How will I study?
The majority of teaching is delivered through lectures, supported by a tutorial programme and seminars. Outside taught hours, you will be expected to spend time reading and researching for written assignments.
Assessment varies between modules. Some are assessed by formal exam, some by coursework, and many by a combination of both. The nature of the coursework varies and includes:
  • individual essays
  • group and individual projects
  • case studies
  • assessed presentations

In your final year, you will be given the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of economics concepts through an independently researched dissertation.
