The PhD (Economics) programme is a research degree, requiring the completion of supervised as well as independent research resulting in peer-reviewed publication. Students interested in pursuing the PhD (Economics)-degree programme are expected to have completed the equivalent of the MPhil (Economics) programme, including advanced topics courses. Students who have not completed the required courses, can still be considered for the degree, but will be required to either complete the necessary courses, as part of a bridging arrangement, or register for the MPhil in Economics.
Not all postgraduate programmes are offered every year. Please consult the relevant faculty's student administration concerning the presentation of this programme.
The dean has the right of authorisation regarding matters not provided for in the General Regulations or the Faculty regulations.
The thesis contributes 100% towards the total requirements for the degree.
Students are expected to complete the degree within three years. Thus, significant progress must be made each year. Each student and supervisor will sign an MOU regarding expectations, and at the end of each year, student progress will be assessed by the department’s postgraduate committee, which reserves the right to recommend that a student not be allowed to continue with their program of study.
The thesis should be passed in accordance with the stipulations of Regulations G.52 and G.60.2.2.
At least one article from the thesis must (at the very least) be submitted for publication before the degree can be awarded. Furthermore, students are expected to present their findings on a continuous basis within the department’s seminar series.
Minimum credits: 360
