Course content

The PG Diploma (Conversion) course is designed for students who wish to undertake a masters programme, but did not specialise in Economics for their undergraduate degree.

The programme can be tailored to suit the needs of students from a range of academic backgrounds, so they are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to complete postgraduate studies in this field.

Students embark on one of two pathways, depending on their academic background and mathematical skills, undertaking core compulsory modules and four optional modules taken from a range of undergraduate programmes. Both routes lead to any of the masters programmes offered within the school.
