Graduate Diploma in Economics
Graduate Diploma in Economics
Nine months full-time
The Graduate Diploma is a conversion course designed for students who wish to move into economics (or finance) and who have both a good degree in another subject and appropriate mathematical skills.
This programme would be ideal for someone who wanted to do a MSc in Economics and needed some undergraduate-level study as preparation (many of our students have gone on to do master's degrees or PhDs at Bristol or elsewhere), but can also be used as a stand-alone qualification for those who want an introduction to quantitative economics.
The programme is a 'crash course': students take second-year core undergraduate units (and one third-year optional unit) and are expected to have done some preparation of first-year level material in their own time before arriving at Bristol.
