Programme structure and module options
Research methods course: 2 week intensive course in Mathematics and Statistics which takes place in the first two weeks of term before core courses begin.
Three core courses, each consisting of 4 hours of lectures and a 1 hour small group class per week.
Research methods course: 1 week course covering, academic writing skills, empirical and econometric skills and software workshops including Matlab, Eviews and Stata.
Four optional courses, two or three from List B : Advanced core options and one or two from List A: Applied options. Most optional courses consist of a 2 hour lecture and a 1 hour small group class per week.
All core and optional courses are assessed by a final exam in May/June (Term 3). For the maths and stats course, students take the final examination at the end of the two-week intensive course, in September. Although weekly problem sets are marked and feedback is given, they do not play any part in the final assessment.
