School of Economics and Finance

PhD Students

Doctoral level study in Economics and Finance by thesis is available for suitably qualified candidates. Theses are prepared and written in close consultation with a staff member who acts as supervisor. Research students are expected to participate in and contribute to research-in-progress seminars organised from time to time by the School.

Students admitted to a PhD will normally be required to have completed a Master’s degree with a thesis component. For information on how to apply, please see the Faculty of Graduate Research. Application deadlines are 1 March, 1 July and 1 November each year.

The Faculty of Graduate Research (FGR) provides the first port of call for all students interested in enrolling in a PhD at Victoria. The Faculty's website provides application forms, details of available funding, application dates, and answers to a host of questions. The FGR continues to provide support to PhD students throughout their studies at Victoria. The staff research areas page may be useful when thinking about topics and potential supervisors. You may also discuss your plans with the School's Postgraduate Programme Director, A/Professor Hai Lin. For PhD administration/queries please contact Professor Ilan Noy.
