    More about the Scottish Graduate Programme In Economics

    The SGPE combines the teaching and research expertise of the universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, St-Andrews, Stirling, Strathclyde and Edinburgh. Around 65 students from all over the world join us each year to study for our MSc Economics or MSc Economics (Finance). The SGPE is hosted and awarded by the University of Edinburgh, one of the worlds leading universities.

    We offer two highly focused research oriented programmes MSc Economics and MSc Economics (Finance). To put it simply our MSc is challenging, research oriented, uses a lot of Maths and covers a lot of economic theory. We dont cover things like management, accounting or the application of economics in our MSc.

    Our students develop the analytical and quantitative techniques required to move directly into a career as a professional research economist for work in government, international organisations or to undertake research for a PhD. Every year about a quarter of our MSc students progress to undertaking a PhD at one of the eight partner institution and remain affiliated with the SGPE as PhDs.

    Preliminary courses
    The programme begins with short preliminary courses in Maths and Econometrics. The intention of the preliminary courses is to refresh your Maths and Econometrics knowledge.

    Core courses
    From October to February there are six core courses: two each in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics.

    Course options
    Course options for the MSc Economics and the MSc Economics (Finance) are offered between February to April. Choose from up to 16 different options.

    Exams and Dissertation
    The core and option courses are examined in April/May each year. After these exams, successful students write a dissertation on a topic their choice of between 8,000 and 10,000 words, for submission in August.

    For those intending to pursue a PhD, the dissertation is often on a topic which relates to their proposed area of research.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
