Description

The Kent School of Economics offers both taught and research postgraduate degrees, covering all aspects of the subject.

We are dedicated to excellence in both teaching and research, demonstrated by results in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 and recent student surveys. All academic staff are active in research, and teaching and learning are informed by the School’s thriving research culture and strong cosmopolitan academic community.

Our taught courses offer excellent training in core economics; the opportunity to specialise in areas such as finance, econometrics, development, agriculture and the environment; and advanced skills necessary for employment as an economist at a senior level.

Economics staff at Kent have an international reputation in their field and the School regularly features highly in annual surveys of departments of economics in the UK. Our staff members serve as academic advisers and experts to UK and international agencies, including the World Bank, the European Commission, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the UK Treasury, the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and the UK Food Standards Agency.

We have 28 academic staff, with about 30-40 MSc students and 38 PhD students.
This creates a good community for interaction between students and ensures students receive a good deal of individual attention in classes and workshops.
