Requirements

Students applying to pursue a specialist PhD in Economics must have a Masters degree in Economics (or its equivalent) and an interest in pursuing in-depth research in an appropriate area. Applicants whose first language is not English are normally expected to have reached a minimum IELTS score of 7.0 (writing scored 7.0, with no subscore less than 6.5) or a score of 100 in the iBT TOEFL. Copies of appropriate English language certificates must be supplied with your application.

English Language Requirements

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
