This is a conversion course for graduates in disciplines other than economics; it gives an understanding of the core principles and techniques of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, and provides a 2-year route to the MPhil. Since modern economics makes frequent use of formal (mathematical and statistical) analysis, a good mathematical background is essential for applicants to the Diploma programme.
Good Honours degree in a subject other than economics required (good mathematical background is essential for applicants to the Diploma). All applicants should have attained or expect to attain the highest undergraduate qualifications. Applicants from UK universities are usually expected to have a first class degree. Applicants from North American institutions should have attained or expect to attain a GPA of 3.7 out of 4 or its equivalent. Applicants from other educational systems should not apply unless they are, or expect to be, within the top ten per cent of their reference group. Applicants whose degree is not from a UK university should submit the result of the graduate record examination (GRE) general test with their application.
The Diploma is made up of lectures from the second year of the BA in Economics, and dedicated Diploma Lectures and classes run by Faculty in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
Assessment is by written papers and an econometrics project.
