The Graduate Diploma in Economics is a one-year full-time conversion programme providing a rigorous training in Economics for graduates who do not have an Economics background at undergraduate level.

In addition to providing a comprehensive coverage of economic theory and quantitative methods, the programme also offers students the opportunity to study courses based on contemporary economic issues such as Industrial Organisation and Economic Growth and Development.

Why take this programme?

The Diploma provides an excellent entry route on to MSc programmes in Economics, including the MSc in Economics and the MSc in Money, Banking and Finance, which is run jointly by the Department of Economics and Department of Accounting and Finance at Lancaster University Management School. Progression is also possible on to the Department's MSc in Quantitative Finance, subject to suitable choice of options at the Diploma level. Successful Diploma candidates will be considered for generous scholarships for the Department's Masters programmes.

The programme is designed for graduates from science, arts, social science and business backgrounds who wish to pursue graduate studies in Economics.
