Our MSc Economics and MSc Economics and Econometrics are designed to equip you to undertake independent research in economics and also to provide the training necessary for a career as an economist in the public and the private sector. They are ESRC-recognised research training programmes.
The MSc Economics and Econometrics offers students a rigorous training in economic analysis and econometrics. It is designed for students with a particular interest in the more quantitative aspects of the subject and is one of the few courses in the UK to offer specialist training in advanced econometric techniques and their application.
Candidates for this course should have a good background in mathematics and statistics at undergraduate level.
You can expect to enjoy predominantly small-group teaching and a considerable degree of individual attention from members of staff. MSc students are strongly encouraged to attend our seminars and research workshops. Our MSc students usually form a lively and cohesive group which plays an active role in the academic and social life of the Division.
The programme is full-time and lasts for 12 months, with nine months of taught modules between October and June of the academic year, followed by three months of supervised research for a masters dissertation.
