The Economics programme from University of York is an innovative programme within an active and stimulating research environment that will provide you with a thorough training in economics for researchers, with a structured pathway to undertaking your doctoral research. In your first year you will undertake a comprehensive graduate training programme to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge for research in economics.
We also offer a variation on the iPhD for students whose research is primarily focused upon Health Economics. This programme runs in exactly the same format as the standard iPhD, except that during the taught first year the Health Economics module is a compulsory assessed component, and Macroeconomics for Research is an optional module (the reverse is the case with the standard iPhD). The application process for this route is exactly the same as for the standard iPhD.
Students will be encouraged to actively participate in seminars and workshops organised by the Department of Economics, and will have the opportunity to play an active role in the Department research activities.
