Economics research

With much of our research described as 'world leading', the Department of Economics is among the best in the UK for Research Excellence.

Our department is ranked as one of the top 10 research departments in the UK, according to the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014 REF). The report classified 80% of our research as 'world-leading' or internationally excellent (rated 4* and 3*).

We consider our research of the greatest importance and prioritise our real-world impact beyond the university; as such, our facilities reflect our research orientation, and we have sought to ensure our students have easy access to cutting edge resources. We are privileged to be equipped with an ExpReSS Lab for conducting economic and financial experiments, and a working papers archive containing work from current faculty and advanced students.

See below for a short presentation by Dr Dan Anderberg on his research for REF '17, where he interrogated the link between unemployment and domestic violence.


Take a look for further information about the results of the REF 2014.

As a Department, we also run a series of Applied Seminars throughout the year - please refer to Applied Seminars - Autumn 2018 and Applied Seminars - Spring 2019 for more information.
