A friend of mine who lives in Sydney is looking to doÂ postgraduate studiesÂ in economics. Does anyone have advice for him? Here’s his dilemma.
I was hoping that you may be able to give me some advice on options for part-time post graduate study (or point me to someone else who would be good to talk to). I am keen to do a postgrad coursework masters w/ some basic economics and public policy. However most of the eco masters I have looked at require econometrics as a prerequisite (which I donâ€™t have, having completed a humble credit average arts/industrial relations degree), and conversely the public policy masters at most institutions I have looked at donâ€™t have much economics (apart from international development economics). The only exception is the masters that your faculty offers, which while it looks good, isnâ€™t accessible for Sydney-siders.
