As one of the UK's top Economics Departments, Royal Holloway is an excellent place for postgraduate study. The Department has an established Master's portfolio; we also introduced the MSc Finance in 2012 and will be launching the MSc Economics and Statistics in 2013.
For students with non-specialist Economics backgrounds, the department offers a nine-month Diploma in Economics and Diploma in Financial Economics. This offers students with high academic ability the opportunity to develop their skills in Economics to the point where they are eligible to enter the MSc programme.
