The University of Surrey’s MRes Economics programme is designed to prepare you for a research career in academia or in international organisations around the world.

The course provides the standard entry route to the PhD Economics programme, providing the foundation towards doctoral research. Alternatively, you can also graduate with a stand-alone MRes degree after one year.

The MRes provides cutting-edge training in micro, macro, econometrics and research methods 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. 

In our vibrant research-focused department, you’ll learn from academics at the frontier of their research fields. You’ll be able to develop specialist skills and techniques, benefitting from small cohorts and high-quality interaction with our lecturers.

Students will have the opportunity to present their research in the weekly research seminars and financial support to present in international conferences and for overseas research stays is available. 

The programme also provides tailored training to prepare our students for the academic job market placing them in the best economics departments in the UK and overseas.

Our students have been placed in teaching and research positions in leading economics departments in the UK and in Europe, in senior roles in central banks and international institutions across the world, and in leading positions in the private sector. Recent placements include positions at Oxford, Cambridge, EUI, CEP-LSE, University of East Anglia, University of Glasgow, and the Bank of Canada.

We offer generous studentships for the duration of the MRes/PhD course for those with strong research potential, covering international fees, a yearly stipend of £18,069 and a yearly research allowance. 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 end of February until we exhaust funds.

The School of Economics is ranked in the top 10 for business and economics in the United Kingdom by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020.
