Economics is among the top departments in the UK for Research Excellence. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), 80% of the Department's research submitted was ranked as world-leading or internationally excellent (rated 3* and 4*). 

A recent analysis of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) shows that the Economics Department at Royal Holloway is the third best department in the UK for publications.  The study by Jim Taylor and Ian Walker ( provides further insight into the research standing of UK economics departments.  Previous rankings from the data already showed the Department in the top 10 in the UK.

The Department displays strength across the core fields of the discipline - microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics – and in particular labour economics, development economics, experimental economics and economics history. Our Research page gives more information about who does what; both the Experimental Economics and Conflict Analysisgroups also maintain websites.
