About our programmes
The Hull University Business School offers PhD research degrees in a number of research groups, including Economics. Our PhD is a four year full-time degree requiring a student to complete the equivalent of 540 credits worth of research, including both research specialist modules and research thesis preparation. PhD students have the opportunity to add to the sum of knowledge in their chosen field by producing an original piece of research. They are closely supported and given opportunities to travel and attend conferences.
Economics at Hull has a strong research culture and an established reputation in several fields, notably applied microeconomics, international economics, economic development, macroeconomics, and environmental economics. Our active internal and external seminar programmes foster the overall research effort of staff. We are committed to raising the level and ambition of our research to international, world leading standards of excellence.
The business school has a dedicated work room with cutting-edge facilities. PhD students have exclusive access to the Postgraduate Lounge in the newly refurbished Brynmor Jones Library, while all our postgraduate students can make use of facilities in the University's Graduate School. HUBS subscribes to a full range of professional business information services including Reuters Datastream, Reuters Thomson One, Bloomberg, Wharton Research Data Services, Bankscope and FAME.
