We’ll automatically enrol you onto a presessional Mathematics and Statistics programme, to equip you in advance with the methodological skills you’ll need to succeed.

The course will provide you with a thorough grounding in advanced core areas of microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, econometrics and research methods. You’ll also have the opportunity to specialise in international financial economics, engaging in contemporary theoretical and empirical debates.
