The Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics (SGPE)
« on: Dec 07, 2009, 11:54 PM »
The SGPE combines the research and teaching expertise of eight Scottish Universities (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, St. Andrews, Stirling, Dundee, Aberdeen and Strathclyde) to provide graduate students with a high quality and thorough training in economics and to furnish them with the skills of the modern professional economist. The Scottish Graduate Programme comprises a MSc (Masters) course based at the University of Edinburgh and optionally up to three years further study towards a PhD (Doctorate) at any of the participating universities.

The Masters course, which lasts for one year if taken full-time and two years if taken part time, leads to the award of MSc in Economics or MSc in Economics (Finance). The Masters course also forms the compulsory year of coursework and research training for the doctoral component...

The SIRE development will further strengthen the SGPE:

 - The step improvement in quality and international profile of economics research in Scotland will enhance graduate recruitment.   
 - The injection of new high quality senior and junior posts will strengthen and deepen the pool of MSc teaching staff and PhD supervisors.
 - The development of advanced training courses, master classes and workshops, along with other SIRE activities will enhance the provision of the PhD programme.
 - The associated creation of a substantial number of new PhD studentships will boost the quality and number of PhD students.
