MRes/ PhD Programme for Prospective Students

Providing future PhD Economics students with a thorough understanding of research techniques and an in-depth appreciation of the principle concerns for economic researchers.

Please do not write to members of faculty regarding supervision or entry to the PhD.

We do not recruit PhD students in this way. All of our PhD students must either complete the MRes Economics at Warwick or demonstrate they have completed a two year MRes at another institution (with a syllabus closely matching that taught at Warwick) and achieved excellent results. If you are interested in direct entry to the PhD, please apply for the MRes/PhD in the first instance. If you are selected for interview, you should at this stage make clear to the admissions committee that you are seeking direct entry to the PhD.
