Our MSc Economics programmes are intended to deepen your knowledge and understanding of economics as an academic discipline. Our programmes are designed to be flexible so that you will get the most intellectual return, whether you studied economics as the principal focus of your undergraduate degree, or if economics were a minor part of a quantitatively-focussed degree.

The MSc Economics is the most flexible of our programmes and offers you a broad knowledge across the latest economic thinking. You will receive rigorous training in techniques of economic and econometric analysis enabling you to gain a deeper understating of contemporary economic issues and the quantitative skills to be able to analyse and make sense of the latest trends.

With a variety of modules available, you can also shape your Masters to fit your own specific interests, whether working towards a PhD, enhancing your academic knowledge or changing career.

A central objective of all of the programmes is to provide you with insight into the latest thinking in economics. You will be able to attend a series of research seminars, during which you can discuss and present current research papers. You can also participate in the departmental seminar series, which attracts leading academics from universities across the world and provides you with the opportunity to gain insight into current research in economics and econometrics.
