Hi,

in terms of reputation for economics, please could people rank the departments of:

Nottingham
Bristol
Lancaster

Obviously, the reputation of the departments isn't everything, but to get a sense of what other people with knowledge in economics think of the above three would be helpful. I've looked at various sites, mainly:

http://www.thecompleteuniversityguid...ts&s=Economics

and

http://www.theguardian.com/education...asters-courses

So, sticking solely to reputation of the above departments, please help me and rank them.

Thanks in advance.

Econ departments
Nottingham > Bristol >>> Lancaster.

For undergrad level, the difference between Nott and Bris is tiny for general 101 courses. Same bracket of peers. But on MSc and PhD level, you may see the difference. Bristol tends to focus on the core syllabus of econometrics, financial econ, public organisation and maybe a bit policy. This is reflected by small MSc courses on offer, research groups and grants. Bristol does this areas well, but it isn't broad. Very small range - but deep. Some courses are more cash cows such as MSc Econ, Accounting & Finance, or MSc Econ, Finance & Management or MSc Econ, Finance. Just a variation of 2 1/2 themes and milk them.

Nott has a broader econ subject range and excels in them with formidable publications in journals by known academics. Top areas are behaviourial, international econ, finance, econometrics, development, health econ and public policy. This is reflected in more research clusters, courses, guest speakers who present their work in seminars, staffing and funding. Outside the top 5, Nott is regarded as dynamic with vibrant research and teaching. The global Tilburg ranking of econ department looks favourably on Nott at 38th.

Lancaster is not even in the same bracket.

Tcannon - thanks very much for your reply. It's really useful to get other people's opinions. The view forming in my mind based on the research I've done is in line with what you've said, so it's nice to get reassurance that I'm on the right track. Thanks.
