Econometrics

The study of econometrics covers linear regression models, a wide variety of hypothesis tests and techniques for estimating systems of equations. Techniques are illustrated with economic examples such as models with rational expectations, as well as consumption, production and money demand functions. Economics and finance at Birkbeck has acquired an excellent reputation, not only for the quality of its research but also for the quality of its training. We take students who are determined to succeed and are prepared to undergo the rigours of a first-class training.

Entry requirements

1st- or 2nd-Class Honours degree, or its equivalent, in either a directly relevant or a highly quantitative subject. Relevant practical work experience and professional qualifications 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.
