About us

Welcome to the Department of Economics

Prioritising teaching excellence as well as research output, we are one of only two Economics departments in the country placed in the top ten for both research and student satisfaction.

“The best education is not just about learning standard materials and preparing for standard examinations. Students need to have a deeper understanding of the models and methods of Economics, and about how to apply those models in the real world, this is where it matters! We think Royal Holloway is the ideal place for you to prepare for this challenging and exciting future.”

- Arnaud Chevalier, Professor & Head of Department
