Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics

About us

Welcome to the Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics (SGPE) which is a collaboration between eight Scottish universities. The programme is based at the University of Edinburgh.

The Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics welcomes applications from students for our Masters.

Our MSc programmes:

  • are technical and highly focused on theory
  • develop the tools and skills necessary to undertake PhD research
  • enable you to move directly into a career as a professional research economist.

We offer three taught masters programmes:

  • MSc Economics
  • MSc Economics (Econometrics)
  • MSc Economics (Finance)

All three MSc degrees are awarded by the University of Edinburgh and are taught here in Edinburgh by Economics faculty from the eight Scottish universities who belong to the SGPE.

These pages are a guide for prospective students on eligibility and applying, and for current students as to what you can expect during your studies, but also what is expected of you.
