Hi there, I am presently contemplating an offer from LSE for their MSc Econometrics and Mathematical Economics (EME) programme, which comes along with a conditional offer to the MRes/PhD programme should a distinction be attained for the EME programme. I would like to seek some advice on the following please:

  • How is the quality of the course instruction/teaching for the EME programme? I have heard relatively negative feedback pertaining the MSc Economics programme in terms of the lack of guidance/support but would appreciate if views on the EME programme could be provided (and whether the lack of guidance/support is generally what one should expect in postgraduate programmes).
  • Over the past few years, what has been the proportion of EME students attaining a distinction?

Appreciate the advice!
