PhD students in Economics are required to have a strong undergraduate and taught postgraduate background in Economics, but the demands of research often require additional training. We provide a comprehensive suite of training opportunities that allow our students to excel in their research, including:

We also have an active weekly research seminar series where students get exposure to cutting-edge research at the forefront of their disciplines, as well as a less formal “brown bag” workshop series – organised by PhD students – where staff and students present work in progress, allowing PhD students to develop their presentation skills.

We also support students to undertake training related to teaching Economics: the University offers training for PhD students that teach, the Economics Network offers training for Economics GTAs, and we encourage students to achieve recognition for their teaching skills by the Higher Education Academy.
