Course summary

The MPhil in Economics is a one-year master’s degree that runs from mid-September to late June or late July depending on whether students opt to submit a dissertation. This degree is specifically aimed at candidates who are interested in undertaking a master’s degree that will give them the technical training required to undertake a career as a professional economist working for, say, the UK Government Economic Service, or an economics consultancy.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the MPhil degree students should have: acquired advanced technical training in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics; acquired, through optional papers, some knowledge of work at the frontiers of the subject in particular areas; begun to acquire independent research skills and experience of putting them into practice; acquired experience and guidance in formulating a realistic research topic and prepared written work to a strict timetable; and acquired sufficient knowledge and understanding of advanced economics to proceed to a career as a professional economist in business or government, or to a research degree.
