Postgraduate study

Our Economics MSc programmes are designed to equip graduates to succeed both in the workplace or further study.

As one of the UK’s top ten teaching and research centres, students studying at Royal Holloway receive rigorous training in economic analysis, graduating with the tools of the professional economist.

We have a small and select postgraduate programme for a good reason – all of our students benefit from considerable individual attention from our staff.

Our department takes a balanced approach to research and teaching, ensuring that our students have access to cutting edge materials and regularly participate in intellectually challenging debates.
