We offer a wide subject range of taught postgraduate Masters programmes as well as a postgraduate Diploma and Certificate. Masters programmes start in October and have a common format, lasting 12 months full time and 24 months part time (visa restrictions limit part time study to UK and EU students). Programmes consist of a taught component (120 credits) over two eleven-week terms and a dissertation (60 credits) to be completed by September.

Each programme has a set of core modules designed to equip you with appropriate analytical and research skills, and optional modules which enable to you to pursue your own interests. To see our modules, download our module list of suggested module titles, and consult the module descriptions to find out the detailed content of each module.

In addition, programmes enhance skills in communication, data analysis and interpretation, problem solving, evaluation, teamwork and the use of information technology. To support this, we offer specialized support to enhance your learning experience if you are new to learning in the UK, and support the development of research skills for all students.

This provides excellent preparation for both employment and further study, such as a Higher Degree by Research.

Pre-sessional Economics course

This two-week course is offered to those who will study programmes requiring an intermediate knowledge of microeconomics and quantitative methods. It is normally run in mid-September, immediately before the start of the academic year. Applicants for applied economics programmes who have little or no prior training in economics may be required to take this course. The program is also available to students who would like to refresh their economics knowledge prior to beginning their postgraduate course.

English for Academic Purposes

A ten-week course in the autumn term, the in-sessional English for Academic Purposes programme provides support for international students. You can receive continued support during your study year including help with dissertation writing. These courses and support are free to international students.
