Gain the skills and knowledge in applied economics to become a successful, policy-oriented economist in government or international organisations, or at universities.
Much of what you’ll study is at the forefront of the economics discipline in terms of both theory and applications.
You’ll be assessed via unseen written examinations, presentations and term papers. In addition, you’ll write a 15,000-word dissertation supervised by faculty.
This MSc has an internship variant. This allows you to take a three-month internship break for an approved purpose such as a placement in an international organisation or a research assistant post in a university.
The registration period for the MSc is then lengthened by three months. If you are interested in the MSc with an internship, you should apply for the standard MSc as described here and may be transferred to the MSc with an internship after starting the standard MSc.
