Economics - Diploma plus MSc (Full-Time, 2018 Entry)

Our Diploma is aimed at students without a background in economics, and will provide training in the core components of modern economic analysis and appropriate quantitative methods. Students will acquire the ability to analyse economic problems, both empirically and theoretically, developing knowledge of economic trends, institutions and policy.


The Diploma in Economics plus MSc programme is available for those who plan to convert from a first degree subject other than Economics to a Master’s and is therefore offered as a two year programme. You will still need to apply for the MSc, but if you have chosen the Diploma in Economics MSc course initially, we waive the usual application fee. Following successful completion of the Diploma to a required standard you will then be eligible to progress onto our MSc programmes.

Core Modules:

  • Macroeconomics 2 (30 CATS)
  • Microeconomics 2 (30 CATS)
  • Econometrics 1 (30 CATS)

Optional Modules:
This programme has optional modules to choose from to allow you to achieve the required credits to successfully complete the award. At a research led institution, optional module lists are subject to change each year to keep the student learning experience current and up-to-date. For the optional modules available in this department please visit the department website.

* The modules mentioned above may be subject to change. Please read our terms and conditions for more detailed information.


Teaching is mainly carried out through lectures and seminars. We encourage one-to-one interaction with our world-leading academics and offer great flexibility in the optional modules that allow you to specialise or diversify your studies. 


Assessment is through formal examinations and coursework.

Graduate Destinations:

Our students regularly progress to senior careers in banking, finance, public policy and academic research.
