The Graduate Diploma in Economics provides a core training in Economics for graduates (or those with an equivalent qualification) who do not already have an extensive recent economics background. As well as being a qualification in its own right, our Graduate Diploma also provides a sound basis for progression to further postgraduate study. Students who successfully secure a good pass on our Graduate Diploma, subject to the appropriate choice of options, are guaranteed a place on our MA or MSc degree programmes.
