The Department offers a suite of four programmes within a modular framework:
* MSc Economics
* MSc Energy Economics and Policy
* MSc International Economics, Finance and Development
* MSc Business Economics and Finance
Our programmes will train you in the application of economic methods to the analysis of real-world issues. Most of our graduates have gone on to follow careers as economists, particularly in areas relevant to their specialisation, such as the energy industry, multinational enterprises, financial institutions and development agencies, as well as in government departments. Others have wished to develop their research skills further by taking a PhD degree, and a number have gone on to academic positions around the world.
The Department has interests and expertise in a wide range of areas, including macroeconomics, international economics, energy economics, regulation, health, labour economics, public economics, industrial organisation, econometrics, and law and economics.
This programme will provide you with a thorough training in the core areas of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. We aim to produce MSc graduates who are not only well trained technically, but also possess the ability to bring their analytical strengths to bear on applied issues.
The programme will also provide you with training in research methodology and help you to develop the skills needed to undertake independent research in economics. The MSc in Economics provides a high degree of flexibility by allowing you to take options in both semesters from across our range of MSc programmes.
Normally an Upper Second class degree in economics from a United Kingdom university, or an equivalent qualification, is required. However, in certain cases, applicants who have a joint degree in economics and a related discipline, but who have had a wide involvement in the field of their desired specialisation, may also be considered, as may graduates in mathematics, engineering and science. Applicants with non-standard qualifications may be invited for interview to discuss the programme before an offer is made. Overseas applicants who cannot attend for interview may be required to send in written material upon which they may be evaluated. Letters of reference are required from all applicants.
If your first language is not English, we will require some evidence of your proficiency in the English language. Applicants must be able to demonstrate an ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English. You may be required to take an approved proficiency test examination and/or attend a course of English language study before admission.
The following qualifications/tests are suitable as evidence that you meet our minimum level of competence:
* Cambridge Proficiency Examination (Grade C)
* GCSE/GCE Ordinary Level in English (Grade C)
* International English Language Testing System (IELTS) (Band 6)
* NEAB Test in English
* Test in English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) (score of 550 on the paper-based test or 213 on the computer-based test)
* AEB Test in English for Educational Purposes (Grade III)
