Course Summary

The Graduate Diploma in Economics provides a core training in Economics for those who do not already have an extensive recent economics background. The course is offered over 10 months, full-time.

Graduates of the programme who achieve a good pass may progress to Master’s-level study on our Academic and Professional Programme, which is suitable for those who wish to progress either to a PhD in Economics, or to employment as a professional economist in government, a financial institution, business, commerce, industry, an international agency or another similar organisation.

ABOUT

The Graduate Diploma in Economics is taken over 10 months, full-time. As well as being a qualification in its own right, it provides a sound basis for progression to further postgraduate study. Students who successfully secure a good pass on our Graduate Diploma, subject to the appropriate choice of options, are guaranteed a place on our MSc degree programme.

The Diploma consists of a combination of undergraduate-level taught modules. There are compulsory modules in intermediate microeconomics, intermediate macroeconomics and econometrics.

By way of additional support, the School of Economics runs an intensive course in Mathematics and Statistics for Economists in the fortnight before the degree starts in September. This incorporates the techniques of calculus, statistical analysis and statistical computing. While not compulsory it is strongly recommended that students attend this course?.
