The Economics Department at Royal Holloway displays strength across all main fields of the discipline – microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics â and in particular labour economics, development economics, and experimental economics. In the nation-wide 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) the Department came joint ninth in the country in terms of producing the highest quality research. Eighty percent of our research submitted to the RAE was classified as “world-leading or internationally excellent”.
The Department offers a vibrant full-time four-year PhD programme with, in 2013-14, some 30 students enrolled. Students on the programme benefit from advanced economics training in their first year, and from annual in-house PhD Spring conference with invited speakers. It is part of the South East Doctoral Training Centre (SE-DTC), funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), which provides a range of research and training related activities in the field of social sciences.
