One optional core module in Economic Analysis:

  • Economic Analysis AA
  • Economic Analysis AB
  • Economic Analysis BA
  • Economic Analysis BB

Each of the modules will develop your understanding of advanced microeconomic and macroeconomic analysis, with more applied/policy orientated versions (A) and more technical/theoretically orientated versions (B).

One optional core module in Quantitative Methods:

  • Econometrics A
  • Econometrics B

Econometrics A covers fundamental econometrics research skills and Econometrics B will supplement the development of these key and fundamental professional skills by looking at more advanced topics.

Three optional modules

Students need to have previously completed undergraduate courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics/economic statistics at an intermediate level. The MSc Economics and International Financial Economics is a quantitative degree and students will need to be competent in several areas of mathematics. All student attend a short pre-sessional mathematics and statistics course before the term starts. As a guide, we expect students opting for B versions of Macroeconomics or Microeconomics to have obtained the equivalent of a First class mark (70%) in their undergraduate studies, though we will consider a request to take a B variant even if that prerequisite is not met.

Typical careers paths

Economists and analysts working in Central Banks (including the Bank of England and European Central Bank), Government Departments and International Financial Institutions.

First or upper-second class honours degree or equivalent in economics or a closely-related subject. If English is not your first language, IELTS 6.5 is required. Further details are given on our entry specifications page
