Course Summary

This two-year programme provides rigorous mathematical training in modern economics. It will equip you with a thorough understanding of the research tools and techniques, both theoretical and empirical, required for the analysis of economics.

This MRes is distinctive in its two-year programme structure and will provide you with comprehensive foundational training in economics. It is modelled on the established tradition of US universities providing thorough PhD preparation. It is ideally suited if you have a quantitative background, but limited exposure to economic ideas, or if you have a background in economics and are interested in developing this knowledge in line with the current standards of economics research. It includes extensive training in qualitative research methods of mathematics, statistics and econometrics, as well as the mathematical treatment of the core areas of economics.

During this course, students will have the opportunity to join the Economics Group, which is a vibrant postgraduate research community that runs a series of seminars dedicated to different subjects within economics. The group also hosts workshops and conferences, and attracts international research visitors of world-leading quality.
