MSc Pre-Sessional: Introductory Mathematics and Statistics Online

You are required to attend the online Introductory to Mathematics and Statistics course, which will be taught during the first two weeks of your MSc programme.

Preparatory work for Introductory Mathematics and Statistics can be found here.


Personal Tutor Meeting

Please ensure that you arrange to meet with your personal tutor during Personal Tutor week; 5 - 9 October 2020. You can find out who your personal tutor is by visiting Tabula.


MSc Teaching Timetable

Check your teaching timetable carefully and regularly as the timetable is always subject to change at short notice. The 2020/2021 timetable can be viewed on Tabula and will be complete when you have signed up for modules and classes.


MSc Modules and eMR

When you arrive at the University you will need to register your module choices for the 2020/2021 academic year using the eVision Module Registration (EMR) system. The system will be open from Thursday 1 October 2020 to Friday 23 October 2020; to access EMR you will need to sign-in via eVision.

Please note: EC932 Economic History and EC977 Panel Data Econometrics will not be running in 2020/2021.


MSc Handbook

Your handbook contains important information about your programme of study, degree regulations, Departmental and University procedures, and other useful information. You should ensure that you are familiar with the content of this document and refer to it in the first instance should you have a query about your course.


IT Systems

During your time as an Economics student, you will encounter various IT systems for different purposes. As there is a lot to take in during your first few weeks, we have created a summary of these systems and their uses to help make it that little easier for you.


Status Letters

Once you have formally enrolled as a new student you can request a status letter via the Enrolment Dashboard of eVision. You should wait until you have your new term-time address before requesting a letter. Letters requested before 4pm will be available to collect the following day from Student Reception in Senate House.

Status letters may be required for the following reasons:

  • International students wishing to open bank accounts with most banks (not required for Santander).
  • To obtain a schengen visa, or to use with other overseas visa applications.
  • For Council Tax exemption purposes (this is not required for addresses with a CV postcode).
