Postgraduate Programmes

Postgraduate courses (taught in English) and degrees in the Department of Economics cover the full spectrum from honours to the masters degree and Ph.D. The honours degree typically requires a fourth year of study after obtaining at least a second class major (60 per cent) in Economics in a three year bachelor’s degree course. Students are accepted for study and research towards a masters degree after completion of an honours degree or what is judged by Faculty and Senate to be its equivalent. Acceptance into Ph.D. programmes is considered if prospective candidates have a masters degree or its equivalent.

Please click on the individual links in the menu on the left for more detailed information on the various programmes. There are also a number of funding opportunities available.
