    What will you study?

    In the Economic Policy MA you will engage with the core graduate economic analyses necessary for advanced level economics research: Macro & Micro Theory and Applied Econometrics and Economic Policy. In addition, you will study the economic history of capitalism and the history of economic ideas in Economic Change & Ideas, putting the issues surrounding the evaluation of economic policy in a broad historical and intellectual context. You will also pursue intensive study of the contemporary globalised and financialised economy and its relationship to economic development in Financialisation, Globalisation and Economic Policy. These modules serve as excellent preparation to pursue high-level research into an applied economic policy topic in the dissertation. You will work individually with a member of staff to choose a topic for your dissertation, research this topic and write up your conclusions.

    On successful completion of the programme you will have acquired a precise and professional knowledge of the procedures used to analyse current issues in economic policy.

    One or more of the following will normally be regarded as appropriate admission requirements:

    • Successful completion of a certified programme of study in an area appropriate to the content of the degree (normally a good second-class honours undergraduate degree or its equivalent, including, where appropriate, quantitative methods having been studied to an appropriate standard); strong academic performance in other disciplines will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
    • Relevant non-certificated learning.
    • An appropriate combination of certificated and non-certificated learning.

    All certificated and non-certificated learning will require verification. In the case of certificated learning, this will require the presentation of relevant certificates and/or confirmation from the award giving body. In the case of non-certificated learning, verification will be established in the course of the interview to which all applicants will be invited, or, where appropriate, through the submission of supporting documentation and evidence. Where the evidence of the fulfilment of the appropriate admission requirements is inconclusive, the applicant may be asked to complete a written exercise.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
