Economics training

We offer a number of different ways in which you can learn with us at the Fraser of Allander Institute.

Economics Training Programmes 

As part of a University that prides itself on being the ‘Place of Useful Learning’, the Institute works closely with organisations to help improve the skills and knowledge of their staff.

Our economics courses – both accredited and CPD – are in high demand with participants from across the public, private and third sectors. All our courses use real-world examples to give participants an opportunity to see economics in action.

MSc Study

We offer 3 MSc programmes in economics: MSc Applied Economics, MSc Economics & Finance, MSc Economics & Policy of Energy & Climate Change and MSc Applied Economics. 

Supporting the next generation 

One of the Department’s main roles is of course teaching. We seek to develop new economists to grow and develop their skills and knowledge. More details on our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching activities are available on our website. We work closely to embed insights and opportunities from external partners into our teaching and into our offering to our students.

In support of our students, and our external partners, we also host regular careers events where employers can meet our students and our students can learn about the employment opportunities available to them in the public, private and third sectors.

With financial support from the Scottish Funding Council, we are the host institute for the Economics Futures initiative. The aim of this 3-year project is to support the development of economics capacity in Scotland.

We also host a number of students each year as part of the ResearchInterns@Strathclyde and external Carnegie Vacation Scholarship programmes.
