MSc Economics Scholarships

Scholarships will be awarded purely on the basis of demonstrated potential for academic excellence, assessed via the standard application form used to apply for a place on the MSc Economics programme. There is no separate Scholarship application form.

The potential for excellence will be judged to be demonstrated if the application:

  • Shows that it exceeds our minimum entry requirements by a significant margin and/or otherwise outperforms applicants competing for the scholarships under consideration;
  • Shows excellent performance on specific modules considered relevant and valuable preparation for the programme applied to, e.g. on quantitative and economics/finance module.


In order to be considered for the Scholarship, applications for September 2021 must be received by 01 March 2021.

Coursework Prizes

In 2019/20 the School will make available a number of prizes to reward, in each compulsory module, those students who have excelled in coursework, by achieving the highest overall grade for their MSc programmes.

A prize of £100 will be awarded for the highest midterm/coursework mark per compulsory module. If more than one student achieves the same highest mark, the prize money is split between the students with a minimum of £50 prize. This will include joint programme students.

A prize of £500 will be awarded for the best overall college mark for each MSc Programme. MSc programmes run jointly with another School will not be eligible for the overall prize.
