MSc Econometrics and Mathematical Economics (twoyear Programme)
For second year students in 201314
Students without a strong background in both economics and mathematics are required to take the MSc programme over two years, starting with attendance on the September Course EC400. The first year of the programme is governed by the 'Regulations for Diplomas'; students who successfully complete the examinations at the end of the first year will be awarded a Diploma in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics. In order to progress to the second year, which is governed by the 'Regulations for Taught Masters Degrees', students must gain marks of 60% or higher in each examinable course at the end of their first year. The SubBoard of Examiners may, at its discretion, consider for progression candidates who fall marginally short of this requirement. However, students gaining the Diploma in a resit attempt are not eligible for progression onto the MSc, nor are students entitled to resit first year examinations already passed in order to achieve the progression standard.
