Ranked in the top 10 for business and economics in the UK by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021, the School of Economics at Surrey offers an attractive doctoral programme, similar in structure to top US PhD programmes. Our MRes/PhD Economics is designed for candidates with an outstanding background in Economics, typically already holding an MSc in the subject, who wish to engage in leading doctoral research in Economics.

The standard entry route to the PhD programme is through the MRes Economics programme. The MRes provides cutting-edge training in micro, macro, econometrics and research methods lasting one year and is, on successful completion, followed by the PhD programme, lasting three to four years during which students take advanced PhD field courses and work on their research. A small number of places with direct entry into the PhD programme is reserved for applicants that hold a degree similar to our MRes.

An attractive feature of the MRes/PhD programme at Surrey is the relatively small cohort size of the programme. This guarantees a first-rate match of the research interests of the students with leading academics as supervisors. A limited cohort size also allows for insightful interaction with the lecturers delivering the MRes and PhD courses. This allows us to provide full funding for most students in the programme for the entire duration of the programme.

At Surrey, we are also very proud to have 97% of postgraduates in employment or further study within 15 months (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020, HESA).

Scholarship
Our scholarships cover international fees and pay a stipend of approximately £17,500 annually covering four years in the MRes/PhD. In exchange, students deliver moderate amount of tutorial teaching/ marking/ research assistance providing our students with useful teaching and research skills. We also have places available for a small number of outstanding students with their own funding. Funding will be allocated on a rolling basis from the beginning of February until we exhaust funds.
