European Doctoral Program in Quantitative Economics
The European Doctoral Program in Quantitative Economics (EDP) is a program of doctoral studies in economics organised jointly by the following universities:
This is done within the framework of the existing degree requirements of these institutions. The aim of the EDP is to promote the exchange of doctoral students between these institutions in order for their research training to benefit from the institutions' strenghts in the various areas of quantitative economics.
Each institution offers courses for two years (referred to as the preliminary and advanced year respectively), and research supervision. Doctoral students participating in the program spend these two years studying and working on their dissertation in the institutions of the EDP network. They are required to spend at least three months abroad in an EDP institution different from the one where their dissertation will be presented.
The program focuses on economic theory, mathematical economics, decision and game theory, econometric theory and methodology, empirical econometrics and applied mathematical economics through the coordinated curriculum based on the activities at Barcelona, Bonn, Florence, London, Louvain, Paris and Tel-Aviv. It creates the opportunity for students to specialize in almost any major area of quantitative economics and, at the same time, it allows students to integrate different aspects of economics. Moreover, the EDP offers a unique access to the traditions and current research of these seven institutions.

Application procedure at UCL
In order to apply for the European Doctoral Program in Quantitative Economics, please note that you have to be a member of one of the seven institutions that are affiliated with the program, CORE (UCL) being one of them.
Doing a PHD at UCL/CORE
If you wish to do a PhD at UCL/CORE, you will need a research project and a supervisor. Then, your project will have to be presented to the CDDs (Subject-specific doctoral committees). If they think your project is a viable one, your last step will be to to start looking for fundings on your own. Once accepted, you have to register at UCL. Only then will you be able to apply for EDP.
