The Kent School of Economics offers both taught and research postgraduate degrees, covering all aspects of the subject.
The Econometrics degree offers a thorough training in advanced economics and econometrics. Building on a sound general training in econometric methods, the project-oriented compulsory modules in time series econometrics and applied microeconometrics introduce you to the theory and practice of econometric modelling. The programme is one of the few courses in the UK to offer specialist training in advanced econometric methods and their application. Economists with quantitative skills and experience in empirical research are in high demand in both the private and public sector.
Our teaching is informed by the research and scholarship of teaching staff, and is aimed at motivating you to achieve your full potential. All MSc students take a module in Research Methods, which provides practical skills and knowledge for MSc-level research. Students have widely differing backgrounds in mathematics, so the first week of all our Master’s programmes is given over to compulsory intensive teaching in mathematics.
