The MSc in Development Economics is one of the Department's newer taught MSc programmes and it reflects the Department's growing strength in both theoretical and applied policy areas, particularly as they relate to developing countries.
One third of your pre-Masters year will be spent developing your English skills and academic skills; allowing you to approach academic reading and writing with confidence. You will also develop analytical and mathematical skills in your Economics modules.
Aimed at highly motivated international learners with an excellent academic record, the pre-Masters year is designed to bridge the gap between your current qualification and the postgraduate programme at Birmingham. You will develop both subject specific knowledge in the area of Economics and your academic English.
Other general MSc programmes, or more specialised and policy-oriented programmes, are available in the area of Economics, Banking or Finance.
This two-year course is suitable for students with a good undergraduate degree in an unrelated subject that includes mathematical content including some coverage of Calculus and statistics. Applicants with a recognised first degree in a subject related to Economics will also be eligible for consideration.International pre-Masters programmes entry requirements apply
A tuition fee of £12,565 will be payable for year one of the International pre-Masters programme for 2014–2015.
