Our Research Student Community

Students' whose PhD is related to competition policy will be assigned a supervisor who is a CCP faculty member, enabling PhD students to become eligible join the Centre. In becoming a member, students are given the unique opportunity to interact with a large community of researchers and faculty from different disciplines across a wide-range of activities, in addition to receiving training in their discipline from the associated school. The Centre also offers a comprehensive range of activities to contribute to students' learning plans, such as networking opportunities with representatives from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills and the Competition and Markets Authority, and occasionally offering students the opportunity for work as Research Associates on various small projects. 

In order to fully benefit from Centre members extensive knowledge, expertise and contacts, student members are expected to attend and participate in the weekly seminars, our biannual research review day, the CCP Annual Conference and our PhD Workshop.

Whilst the Centre does not run a PhD programme directly, you can study for a PhD at the UEA through the Centre's affiliated Schools: School of Economics; Political Science, Norwich Business School and UEA Law School, depending on your area of interest.

PhD Workshop

Each year CCP holds a PhD Workshop, which brings together new researchers from Economics, Law, Management and Politics within the UEA who share an interest in competition law and policy along with a number of external researchers who are invited each year to present, and to stay and attend the conference which takes place directly after the workshop. The aim of the workshop is to facilitate the exchange of ideas in the broad area of competition policy both within and across discipline boundaries with student presenting an area of their research and participating actively in other presentations' discussions.
