Full-time students will be expected to take three taught modules in their first year, in at least two of Advanced Macroeconomics, Advanced Microeconomics, and Econometrics, with a possible choice of one module from the Cass Business School MRes programme. Progression to the second year will be conditional on passing these modules. Part-time students will be expected to pass these three modules during their first two years.

Promotion to registration to PhD is not automatic, but contingent on the satisfactory outcome of a review process.This normally takes place towards the beginning of the second year of registration for full-time candidates and towards the beginning of the third year for part-time candidates. Students submit a report to an academic panel and present at the annual research colloquium. If the outcome is satisfactory, the student will be upgraded to PhD.

The programme will conclude with submission of your research in the form of a PhD thesis and attendance at a viva voce examination in front of at least two examiners, at least one of whom will be external to the University.
