The School has a reputation for research and teaching built upon a commitment to theoretical and, rigorously founded, applied work. The School enjoys a strong profile in research, exemplified by the successful submission to 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) where we are ranked in the top ten of all participating Economics departments in UK for the quality of our research outputs (according to Times Higher Education).
Our research focuses on broadly defined themes including macroeconomics, energy economics, utility regulation and other topics in applied microeconomics. We actively embrace multidisciplinary research and are key members of University-based research teams in health, ethnicity/immigration, radiocommunications and the environment.
We have two research centres (Centre for International Macroeconomic Studies – CIMS, and Surrey Energy Economics Centre – SEEC), and research groupings covering multidisciplinary areas of health and applied microeconomics. In addition to activity within these structures, we also believe that flexible collaborations and individual scholarship are powerful modalities for generating high quality research and these are also encouraged.
