The substantive content of the Advanced Studies subject will include current research projects being conducted by Faculty staff and/or visiting scholars.

Alongside the Economics Thesis Workshop, which enhances the preparation of the student’s research project, Advanced Studies will provide graduate-level engagement with contemporary work in Econometrics in the student’s own area, or in cognate sub-disciplinary areas.

Advanced Studies is an opportunity for students to expand their repertoire and demonstrate their graduate-level knowledge in other areas of the discipline. It provides a forum that will inform the research and project development of Graduate Research Degree students, assisting in the framing of research questions and the development and articulation of argument and evidence.
