Providing future PhD Economics students with a thorough understanding of research techniques and an in-depth appreciation of the principal 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 an interview, you should at this stage make clear to the admissions committee that you are seeking direct entry to the PhD.
Warwick is a place of challenge, where we'll encourage you to question your existing ideas and stretch yourself academically.
Admissions to our courses are very competitive so it is essential that you read the entry criteria to ensure you meet our requirements before applying.
We permit individuals to apply for registration as a candidate for the award of a PhD through the submission of a portfolio of published research.
Our bespoke Academic Induction webpages are designed to provide you with all of the information you will need to prepare for your studies with us.
As an economics student at Warwick, you'll receive both an outstanding academic education from top-class researchers and a rich and rounded experience outside of the lecture hall.
We are consistently ranked in the top 30 in the world, and in the top 10 in Europe, for the quality of our research output.
