We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Economics and Econometrics MSc programme offers a thorough training in advanced economic and econometric theory and quantitative methods, while allowing students to specialise or take options in a range of subjects reflecting the School’s main areas of research expertise.
Building on a sound general training in econometric methods, the project-oriented compulsory modules in time series econometrics and applied microeconometrics introduce you to the theory and practice of econometric modelling. The programme is one of the few courses in the UK to offer specialist training in advanced econometric methods and their application. Economists with quantitative skills and experience in empirical research are in high demand in both the private and public sector.

Start dates & study options
Why did you choose to study at Kent?
Kent has a great reputation as a university and for economics. What first attracted me was the ability to expand my knowledge of economics and increase my technical ability in regards to stats courses.
What did you particularly enjoy about your studies/time here?
I really loved the campus and the course; specifically Advanced Microeconomics. I think that module engaged me the most and forced me to really get to grips with maths I thought I'd forgotten.
How have you found the teaching?
I found the teaching on the whole to be really good. The lecturers cared and provided a lot of support.
What are the facilities like in the School and on campus generally?
The School facilities are really good, the MSc room was upgraded whilst I was there with new computers and screens. The campus is one of the best I've ever been to, plenty of choice when it comes to bars and places to eat. The gym is top notch and there were plenty of societies and sports teams.
How do you think your postgraduate studies will affect your employment prospects?
The MSc gave me the wealth of specialist knowledge necessary for me to pass the tests and assessment centres for my current job. In terms of transferable skills, I believe the numerical ability this course fosters is extremely useful and the training on how to use Stata and Eviews will be of great use.
What are your future career plans?
I am working for the Goverment Economic Service and plan to progress through the fast stream within the Civil Service.
What advice would you offer potential Master’s students?
Make the most of all that Kent has to offer. Try out as many clubs and societies as you can and do your best to not only study but also integrate fully with the student life.
