    Hi there,

    My time as an undergraduate studying economics is nearly over and I'm thinking about moving on to a postgraduate level. I am having a bit of a hard time deciding on what exactly I should do for a masters.

    I know I want it to be related to economics and my interests lie on an international scale with a focus on macroeconomics rather than microeconomics. Does anyone have some degree suggestions I can look at?

    Cheers!

    Hey, I know this doesn't answer your enquiry but I was wondering how maths based economics is at Uni? Is it just basic maths or would Alevel maths be used? Thanks

    Economics is very maths based.

    A-level maths is a bare minimum in my opinion. You can do an undergraduate degree with basic math, but you need to be dedicated enough to get yourself up to a proficient level and only then can you start actually learning math-based economic theory.

    If you decide to do a Bsc in economics, maths will be tougher as opposed to a BA.

    It also depends on each uni.

    Hope that helps.

    I also agree with the above, however if you work hard it is not impossible, it will just require a little dedication, many universities also have workshops etc to help with Maths skills.

    Hey I am in the same situation however i am already UK resident, but not sure of which MSc to pick from what I have gathered so far I would do an MSc in economics with econometrics, find a combined degree. So an economics degree with many econometric modules like the one for health economics in York consisting of a large number of econometric modules
