Course content

The two-year MRes programme will equip you with advanced skills in the core areas of Economics and is excellent preparation for a research career. You will study core modules in advanced Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Econometrics in the first year along with a core module in The Practice of Economic Research.

In your second year you will specialise with a choice of two field modules and the completion of a dissertation (of up to 20,000 words). If you achieve the required progression criteria, you can progress to PhD Economics. Direct entry to the PhD is permitted. However, you must have completed an equivalent MRes to that offered at Warwick or another top institution.
