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.
