The M.Sc. programme is taught in two parts and consists of four components: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and  Research Topics.  In the first part all modules are compulsory. In the second part students fulfil programme requirements by choosing from a range of elective modules.  The core modules are taught around weekly problem sheets followed by examinations, while assessment for Research Topics is based on essays and presentations. In addition, students are expected to complete a dissertation of 12,000 words. Permission to proceed to the dissertation is dependent on achieving a satisfactory pass mark in the coursework components. Students who are unable to proceed to the dissertation or who fail to achieve a satisfactory mark for the dissertation element may be eligible for the award of a Postgraduate Diploma in Economics. A number of scholarships may be awarded annually to highly qualified candidates. Further details are available on the programme website.
