This is a one year full-time programme that provides an accelerated route to the equivalent of an honours degree in Economics. All key areas of Economics are covered, including Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and a range of applied courses such as Labour Economics, International Trade, Economics of Sport and Finance.
A performance of 60% or better in the diploma guarantees a place on our Master's programmes, MHH52 and MHH64.
The programme covers Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and a range of applied courses such as Labour Economics, International Trade, Economics of Sport and Finance.
Students take four compulsory modules, including a research-based thesis. They also take eight optional modules, which can vary greatly, depending on the background and career goals of the individual student. Students discuss which modules would be best for them with the course co-ordinator at the start of the year, and are helped to devise the optimal programme of study for themselves. Students who wish to take a module from another department may do so, subject to the permission of that department. Not all combinations of modules may be available, due to timetable considerations.
An honours primary degree in any discipline. Students without any knowledge of economics are strongly advised to have a good background in Statistics and Quantitative Methods and to be prepared to undertake substantial independent study to equip themselves with the expected level of Economics. Well-motivated, quantitatively able honours graduates of any discipline are welcome to apply. Applicants must have a recognised primary degree which is considered equivalent to Irish university primary degree level.

In general, there are two levels of fees payable. EU students from EU countries including Ireland pay a subsidised level of fees for both taught courses and research programmes. Tuition fees for students from outside the EU are not subsidised and are thus somewhat higher than for EU students.
