    Course Summary

    An MSc in Economics from the University of Sheffield will improve your quantitative research and analysis skills, as well as allowing you to explore the finer points of economics, finance, or both.

    Economics is justifiably considered to be Sheffield’s flagship Masters of Science degree program. It is really quite flexible for an MSc course, in that there are so few required ‘core’ modules. Most of what you learn will be taken from the wide range of electives to which you will have access.

    You have the option of specialising, of course. Many students select modules to build an expertise as financial economists, consultant or even researchers, for example.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning & Teaching

    The university of Sheffield encourages a creative approach to learning and teaching, and seeks to give their staff the time, resources and freedom they need to develop truly revolutionary modules and truly cater to the needs of their students.

    • Flexibility and remaining responsive to research and job markets
    • Encouraging rich dialogues between students and staff
    • Reviewing at the program level, rather than the module level
    • Supporting innovative approaches and perspectives among staff
    • Letting departments define their own needs and goals
    • Carefully managing workload
    • Constantly evaluating and learning form their past performance
    • Retaining a student-focused perspective
