University of Westminster

Course Introduction

The programme aims to provide you with an in'depth knowledge and understanding of the latest developments in economics, with a focus on practical application and development of the skills needed by a working economist. It is specifically aimed at those with a genuine interest in the application of economics to real'world situations. As well as enhancing your ability to apply relevant economic principles in the support of policy and strategy development, the course aims to develop your ability to communicate complex issues to wide audiences; your awareness of significant sources of economic and financial data; the problems that are faced when economists attempt to carry out policy evaluation; and your capability for self'awareness and group working.

Course Additional Entry

You should normally hold a first degree from a recognised institution (minimum Lower Second), or international equivalent. If your first degree is in Economics or a cognate discipline (like Business, Geography, Development Studies or other Social Sciences, for instance), a minimum Lower Second (or international equivalent) is acceptable, but for a more general first degree you would normally require an Upper Second (or international equivalent).
