What our students think

The University of Southampton enabled me to flourish in my chosen line of work, and I will always fondly remember my time on England's sunny south coast.

Signing off, I wish to stress that my Doctoral studies and achievements are an amalgam of inspiration, challenge, encouragement from fantastic academic staff and colleagues and a great working environment. For students thinking of undertaking postgraduate and/or Doctoral studies in Economics at the University of Southampton, I would simply say “go for it, you will love it!

What's most important is that the Division ranks very highly in the UK. It is widely recognised for the high quality of both its research and teaching.

Southampton was immediately one of my favourite choices because its Economics Department is one of the top 10 in the UK.

I have also been lucky enough to take part in a follow-up project with the Bank for International Settlements on my work, and we will probably publish a paper in September/October about the results of my dissertation
