Ask a question

The good reputation of its economic department, the academic staff who have brilliant backgrounds and huge academic resources attracted me to come to the University of Southampton. The process of a PhD research programme is a long and independent voyage that you have to manage on your own time. The availability and support from the supervisors makes research look like a wonderful hobby.
