Environment and Sustainable Development
Applicants require a 2.1 Honours degree or non-UK equivalent qualification (for example, Grade Point Average 3.0 or above) in Economics or in a relevant subject containing a significant amount of economics; applications may also be considered from those with other backgrounds, particularly in technical subjects such as engineering or earth sciences (with at least 2 credit-bearing courses in economics). For applicants whose 1st language is not English, the University sets a minimum English language proficiency level, being IELTS overall 6.5 score (no sub-test less than 6.0), or equivalent scores in another recognised qualification.
Students take 4 core courses, 2 optional courses and complete a substantial independent piece of work, normally in the form of a dissertation. A pre-sessional refresher course in economics is also available for those who wish to revise their economics. This non-credit bearing course takes place during induction week. Core courses: development policy; environmental economics; policies for sustainability and development; theory and principles of sustainability. Optional courses: aid and development; basic econometrics; behavioural economics: theory and applications; financial institutions and markets in developing countries; growth and development; IMF, world bank and economic growth; international trade; money, finance and growth; project planning, appraisal and implementation; the economics of inequality and deprivation; the law and economics of sovereign debt regulation.
Students write a dissertation of between 12,000-15,000 words.
