OU economists are involved in major externally funded pieces of work related to development and health, inequalities within households and the measurement of economic progress. There are also high-profile research connections with other leading universities around the world.
We welcome applications from students with interests in development, innovation, industrial economics, health, economic theory and philosophy, behavioural economics, economics of personal finance, economics and gender issues – particularly in household or labour economics.
Research students work closely with supervisors and have been very successful in obtaining jobs in academia.
