Sussex is known for development economics, personally I wouldn't go there for an MSc if you're not interested in development economics. For this is probably top2-3 in the UK.

I think Surrey is meant to be somewhat known for macro and computational macro.

Also, if I were I would probably email one of our PhD Economics students who will be able to give you all the information you are looking for.

Example: Marco Mello PhD Economics Student

If you have any questions about Surrey or uni life in general, then please ask as I am here to help you out!
