An excellent undergraduate degree in Economics or joint degree with Economics is required. For students with joint Economics degrees, we also require good 2.1 class marks in core economics courses, such as Macroeconomics, Microeconomics and Econometrics. Students with a first-class degree from a quantitative Science discipline (e.g., Maths, Physics, Statistics, Operational Research) are strongly encouraged to apply. For candidates who pursue the Financial Economics pathway, a sufficient background in Statistics is also required.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.

At least 2 reference(s) should be provided.
MSc Economics places much emphasis on the area of mathematics and has been designed particularly for those students who intend to continue their studies on to PhD level, within the fields of Economics or Financial Economics, potentially pursuing a career in academia. The programme is also an excellent opportunity for students who may wish to pursue a more professional mode of career development, for instance working within international organisations or research institutes.
The majority of current students have first-class undergraduate degrees in Economics, Finance or Mathematics from Russell Group universities. The programme also attracts students from other internationally renowned universities.
The programme provides students with the option of two pathways: the ‘Financial Economics Pathway’ and the ‘Economics Pathway’. Under each pathway, modules have been introduced to provide students with advanced training in economics or financial economics. Recent dissertation titles have included: ‘A Theoretical Exposition of the Relationship Between Fuel Taxation and Speed Limits: Lessons for UK Motorways’ and ‘Money Growth and Inflation: Evidence from the UK’.
Graduates will gain a sound theoretical grounding in the area of Economics and will have developed a range of analytical and personal skills. The aim of this programme is to enable students to pursue a research-oriented career in the financial industry, international organisations, central banks, academia and research institutions.
