Birkbeck, University of London
1st- or 2nd-Class Honours degree, or its equivalent, in either a directly relevant or a highly quantitative subject, or the Birkbeck Graduate Diploma in Economics. Non-EU students are encouraged to submit Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) or Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) results. In some cases the admissions tutor may request these results in order to make a decision on your application; in that case, you should upload your score report to the online application system as if it were an additional transcript page. Relevant practical work experience also taken into consideration. Demonstrable qualities, such as good time management and the ability to cope under pressure, are vital. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
Core modules reinforce economic theory with practical application. They include preliminary courses in mathematical and statistical techniques, which take place in September and have to be passed in order to progress to the programme.
Options provide specialised modules with current themes. Option module availability varies across years.
