Course summary

Sheffield is one of only a few universities in the north of England with a stand-alone economics department. Our staff are internationally respected. They advise UK government departments and international organisations such as the World Bank. The department is large enough to cover a lot of specialist topics, which means more choice for you. We also offer the option of a year-long work placement with a relevant organisation.The Department of Philosophy, where you will spend roughly half your time, is a supportive environment with a real community feel. You will get a personal adviser – a member of staff who guides you through your studies. You also have the option of a student mentor during the first year. There are no compulsory modules in philosophy so you get to create your own timetable from a long list of options.Some of our graduates become professional economists. Others go into related professions such as banking, insurance and accounting. Some work for organisations such as Deloitte, Nestle, Rolls-Royce, the Office of Budget Responsibility and the Houses of Parliament.
