    Help! I've got offers to read behavioural economics at both universities at postgrad level, and was wondering if anyone could share their experiences? (it's known as Behavioural Science for Management at Stirling)

    Thank you!

    Why did you apply to these two courses? They are not default courses for behavioural economics. City U is also quite expensive.

    Because of their practical focus. Which unis would you say are the default?

    Agreed abt City's fees, but that seems to be the standard. I will be an international student.

    Outside the big 5 (Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, Warwick), I would rate following Econ departments a better fit for behavioural economics. Nottingham, UEA, Essex and Durham. Notts has an established research cluster with vibrant seminars.

    I see... thanks for the explanation. Had scratched out Notts and Durham because of the huge overlap with my undergrad degree. I do have an application with Warwick though, perhaps should wait for that and apply to UEA and Essex. Still some time till the deadline!

    Just curious, how did Notts MSc Econ have overlap with your undergrad BA? The modules range is rather broad to my eyes. But I don't know about your alma mater.

    If you have Warwick application in pipeline, def wait for its outcome. Great econ department though tuition fee is one of the highest.
