Course content

The Graduate Diploma in Economics provides a core training in Economics for graduates (or those with an equivalent qualification) who do not already have an extensive recent economics background.

As well as being a qualification in its own right, our Graduate Diploma also provides a sound basis for progression to further postgraduate study. Students who successfully secure a good pass on our Graduate Diploma, subject to the appropriate choice of options, are guaranteed a place on our MA or MSc degree programmes.

Information for international students

We welcome applications from students whose first language is not English. To ensure such students benefit from postgraduate study, we require evidence of proficiency in English. Our usual entry requirements are as follows: - IELTS: 6.5 (minimum 6.0 in all components) - PTE (Pearson): 62 (minimum 55 in all components)

Fees and funding

A variety of Scholarships and Bursaries may be offered to UK/EU and International students. These are normally awarded to students on the basis of academic merit and are usually for the duration of the period of study. Full details and application deadlines are available from the course web page.
