What our students think
We caught up with a couple of our current students to find out why they chose Durham for their MSc Economics and discover their programme highlights.
MSc Environmental and Natural Resource Economics Graduate 2016
I was looking for a programme and, more importantly, a University that could help me learn as much as possible in my chosen field.
The faculty were an inspiration and the taught materials and delivery methods were easy to grasp, but at the same time made us challenge ourselves. It was an amazing year at Durham and I am very grateful for the opportunity.
MSc Experimental Economics Graduate 2016
I found the MSc in Experimental Economics to be of a great use, combining modules which focused on theory with those directly applicable to problems arising in the workplace. In my opinion, such a blend of modules constitutes the right approach to teaching a graduate degree because one has to understand the theoretical underpinnings of models in order to use them properly.
MSc Economics Graduate 2016
The MSc Economics programme at Durham gave me the opportunity to acquire a profound knowledge of economics as a result of the outstanding curriculum and prominent faculty members. The intensive training and competition with the best students from around the world, together with my hard work, allowed me to graduate with distinction.
MSc Experimental Economics 2016
What I liked most was the broader academic scope of the programme, providing the essential background for a skilled economist. The academic experience was vital in obtaining the important key skills required for my career.
