    Hey everybody,

    Most Indian Economics graduates need to take the two year route (Diploma+Masters) to Masters in Economics, particularly in Cambridge and LSE.
    Is this an invariable policy decision or does anyone know of exceptions that have been made, where students were accepted to the one year degree?

    Thanks,

    I thought the two year programmes are for those students whose undergraduate degrees were not in Economics?

    You're right, but 2-3 econ grads from my college get an offer from one of these places every year, and to the 2 year programme only. i thought i'd ask if it is a policy decision to not accept indian econ students to the 1 year programme.

    Maybe it depends on how your course is structured? Where are you studying?

    Fergusson College, its in the top 10 in India. Then again thats not saying much cause we're talking about Cambridge here. I am studying for two diplomas and a certificate to bring my econ qualifications to international standards though.
    I've also mailed the econ department at Cambridge, will post here once I get a reply.
