Overview

The MLitt Programme extends over a minimum of two years. In the first year (commencing September) students must register full-time and follow the programme of the MA in Economics or the MA in Finance. Once the MA Programme is successfully completed at honours level, the student develops a course of study which combines taught courses, reading courses and research under the guidance of his/her supervisory committee. At the end of the second year the student must present his/her thesis. Should the quality of the thesis meet the PhD standard, a grade of at least 60% in the programme, the student will be invited to continue in the PhD programme.
