Institute for Fiscal Studies


INDUSTRY: Academic Research

What we look for in a graduate
Applicants should have or expect at least a very good 2.1 in an economics-related undergraduate degree course, or have or expect a relevant Master's degree. Non-EU nationals may apply, but any job offer is subject to obtaining a UK work permit.

Typical career paths and progress
If you join us straight from your first degree, you will be encouraged to study part-time for a masters degree, with financial support from the Institute.  If you are interested in further study, support is also given towards part-time study for a PhD; many choose to study at University London and may well be supervised by senior Centre staff.
