Graduate Administrator: Lesley Tohill (email: firstname.lastname@example.org )
Applications for the 2024/25 intake open on 1st October 2023 and will close on 31st of August 2024. For information on fees and how to apply, please click here.
The MSc Qualifier in Economics is designed for graduates who wish to be admitted to one of our Master programme but do not meet the entry requirements. Usually students admitted to the MSc Qualifier either have obtained a bachelor degree in Economics with an award below 2.1, or have a degree in a related disciplines and therefore not sufficient economic knowledge to be admitted directly to our MSc programmes (for example statistics).
The MSc Qualifier is therefore not a diploma per se. It is only a first step to be potentially eligible for our Masters programmes. Note that the minimum entry requirement for our Masters is an overall GPA of 3.08 in the MSc Qualifier programme.
The program comprises of 30 ECTS credits, 6 modules. The curriculum is personalized and it depends on the economic courses taken and the grades achieved in these during the previous studies. The modules each prospective student will take are discussed and agreed with the programme coordinator on an individual basis.
Modules offered are subject to change however we hope to include the following in 2024-25
ECON20040 Statistics for Economists
ECON20020 Intermediate Macroeconomics
Please note that all lectures are during the daytime, Monday to Friday.
