City, University of London
In order to be eligible for entry in to the MSc in Behavioural Economics you must have a first or upper second class degree in Psychology, Economics or a related discipline. An equivalent qualification from an overseas university will also be considered. Selection will be by application form, references and interview. It is not a prerequisite to have a background in Economics or Psychology.
If your first language is not English, then the following qualifications will meet the English language requirement for entry to a postgraduate course of study:
A first degree from a UK university or from the CNAA;
A first degree from an overseas institution recognised by City as providing adequate evidence of proficiency in the English language, for example, from institutions in Australia, Canada or the USA.* GCE O-level/GCSE English language or English literature, grade C minimum.
You will be expected to be computer-literate.
AP(E)L: You may apply for AP(E)L for a minimum of one module and a maximum of 25% of the overall credits for the programme (taught modules only).
Exemptions are not awarded for programmes/qualifications that were awarded five years ago or longer, prior to the enrolment date for the intended programme of study at City, University of London. Programmes/qualifications which were awarded over five years ago may be considered towards AP(E)L requests if the candidate can provide supporting evidence which gives an account of ways in which learning achieved through the programme/qualification has been applied actively and updated within the past five years.
If you are a former student of City who has withdrawn from a programme due to academic failure, then you will not normally be permitted to AP(E)L awarded credits on the same programme within the School.
