Welcome to the Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics (SGPE) which is a collaboration between eight Scottish universities. The programme is based at the University of Edinburgh.
The Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics welcomes applications from students for our Masters. We offer three taught masters programmes; MSc Economics (Econometrics), MSc Economics (Finance) and MSc Economics (Scottish Graduate Programme). All three MSc degrees are awarded by the University of Edinburgh and are taught here in Edinburgh by Economics faculty from the eight Scottish universities who belong to the SGPE.
The following pages are a guide for prospective students on eligibility and applying, and for current students as to what you can expect during your studies, but also what is expected of you.
