The programme is designed for students who are interested in potentially going on to further study at PhD level, and emphasises the knowledge and skills needed for PhD research. The programme may also be suitable for anyone planning to work as an economist outside academia, but seeking a good technical training as a foundation for their later career.
Our usual overall deadline is 1 July 2017 for entry in September.
The school welcomes all applications that fulfil our admissions criteria. However, in order to select a balanced international student cohort, and in response to very high demand from students from China, applications from some countries may close earlier in the year. Any such decision will be reviewed on a regular basis.
