MRes/ PhD Programme for Prospective Students


What does our MRes/PhD in Economics offer...

The MRes/PhD at Warwick is an integrated two year Masters in Economics, from which students progress to the PhD in Economics. It includes:

  • Two years of courses covering the tools, techniques and literature necessary for you to write a PhD dissertation at the forefront of the economics discipline;
  • Four years (maximum) of research under the guidance of world-renowned faculty;
  • Support and resources to enable you to participate in the scientific community and achieve a top job market placement;
  • Scholarships available.

Please do not write to members of faculty regarding supervision or entry to the PhD, as we do not recruit PhD students in this way. For information on direct entry to the PhD (of which there are limited opportunities), please send your enquiry to enquiries.econphd@warwick.ac.uk. In order to be considered you must have completed a two year MRes (with a syllabus closely matching that taught at Warwick) and achieved excellent results.
