    HI Edonas, I'm pleased to see you're considering Heriot-Watt for Economics!

    Our Economics department is always ranked highly by our students and national league tables - 1st in Scotland and 3rd in UK in this year's National Student Survey, and 1st in Scotland and 7th in the UK in the Guardian University Guide.

    We offer two Postgrad programmes in Economics: Economics, Banking and Finance and International Finance and Economic Development. The content on both degrees is driven by our two research centres in Economics which you can read more about here: http://seec.hw.ac.uk/ and here: http://ceerp.hw.ac.uk/

    Both programmes are very flexible and can be shaped around your learning needs. Economics, Banking and Finance lets you choose 3 optional courses on top of 5 core courses whilst International Finance and Economic Development lets you choose 4 optional courses on top of your four core courses.

    Economics, Banking and Finance suits those working towards a career in the financial or banking sector and as Edinburgh is Scotland's financial hub we are really well placed with excellent industry links. More here: Economics, Banking and Finance

    International Finance and Economic Development suits those looking to gain a wider understanding of global economic issues, specifically in developing economies. You can find out more about it here: International Finance and Economic Development

    If you want to know anything more then please drop us an email on [email protected]

    We are also holding a Postgraduate Virtual Open Day on Wednesday 23 November, where you will be able to log-in and chat to our current students about their experiences. Find out more here: Virtual Open Day

    In general though, if you are looking for an enjoyable year of study where you'll meet great people from all over the world, live in a city which is full of history and culture, and study on a beautiful campus then Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh could be an ideal option for you!

    I hope this is helpful!

    Thanks!

    Try looking for others. They're just not reputable for Economics.

    May be you have a look at something like these
    LSE / UCL
    Warwick
    Durham / Bristol / Nottingham...
