UCD School of Economics MSc Scholarships

UCD School of Economics are pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for our 2018/19 MSc programmes for current and former UCD Economics students.  A small number of scholarships are available.  Those awarded the scholarship will be given a full fee waiver for the programme.

Who is Eligible?

The awards will be made to either current final-year UCD Economics students or those who graduated with UCD Economics degrees in 2016/17.  We will consider students who are studying for single or joint honours degrees in Economics, Law with Economics, Economics and Finance or the Higher Diploma in Economics as well as last year’s graduates from these programmes. Awards will only be made in the case where students have a GPA of at least 3.68 in their Level 2 and 3 modules in Economics.

What Criteria Are Used to Decide the Awards?

The scholarships will be awarded by a committee of UCD School of Economics faculty.  The awards will be based on academic merit rather than financial need.  The committee will assess the performance of students in Level 2 and 3 Economics modules at UCD.  They will also consider the amount of Economics modules taken by the student and their level of preparedness for studying for their chosen MSc programme.  All decisions of the awarding committee are final.

Which Programmes Do These Scholarships Apply To?

They apply to each of

  • MSc in Applied Economics
  • MSc in Quantitative Economics
  • MSc in Behavioural Economics

Does the School of Economics Offer Other Types of Financial Support?

Students with first-class honours undergraduate degrees can apply to work as undergraduate tutors while studying on our MSc programmes.  Requests to work as an undergraduate tutor from those accepted onto our MSc programmes should be directed to our MSc co-ordinator, Dr. Orla Doyle at orla.doyle@ucd.ie

How Do I Apply?

Please send a short explanation of your interest in studying for an MSc in Economics at UCD, which programme you are interested and provide any additional evidence you think may be relevant to the committee’s deliberations to nicolas.clifton@ucd.ie.   The closing date for applications is March 30th, 2018.
