Can anyone recommend a credible Economics Msc prog that is respected.
I have looked at the LSE Imperial UCL Kings Cass etc but the price, £30,000 on avg, is truly sickening and I would not be able to afford it. I had looked at Birkbeck , £12,000 for Economics MSc, but not many rate it, even on this site. I am also London based which limits my options.
I am now looking at online degrees and distance based qualifications - can anyone recommend respected institutions?
Thanks

Have you considered studying abroad? Universities on the continent are considerably cheaper than in the UK and with some reputable programs, one even has a non-zero chance of getting some form of financial support.

I haven't no, though sounds like a good idea. I would love to in Switzerland, given that there is a huge banking and finance presence & would be a good way to get relevant experience whilst studying. .

Out of Continental unis, which would you recommend?

Depends a bit on what you are looking for, but of the top of my head, I would recommend something like:

In Switzerland specifically:
- Zurich for economics in general
- St. Gallen for banking & finance
- Geneva for international economics
- Bern is also fine from what I've heard, though I don't know much about it

In wider Europe, I can speak less of the individual strengths of each program, but the following are generally thought of as offering internationally respected econ programs (in no particular order):
- Mannheim
- Bonn
- Bocconi
- Paris School of Economics
- Cemfi in Madrid
- Barcelona Graduate School of Economics
- Pompeu Fabra (also in Barcelona)
- In the Netherlands, there are also 1-2 universities that are known for their econ program. I think Tilburg and Amsterdam, though I'm not quite sure.
- Some others that I haven't thought of and that deserve mentioning.

As you can see, it's quite a diverse mix of places, so I'm sure that there would be something that suits your taste
