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 modules across List A: Applied options AND List B: Advanced Core options. Students who plan to proceed to PhD-level study are advised to take two or more modules from List B: Advanced Core options. In particular, students who take at least two modules from List B: Advanced Core options will qualify for a conditional offer upon applying to the UCL MRes/MPhil/PhD Economics programme.
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.
June – September
