Course summary

How do countries fund their emergency services? Why do celebrities get paid so much?An understanding of economics gets to the heart of how the world works. It’s also highly prized by employers in the private and public sectors.

We build on first principles, looking at issues in the real world. Our degree weaves theory and evidence into policy analysis. This allows you to understand fundamental issues and topical concerns. All first years study the Principles of Economics and Quantitative Methods for Economics, covering mathematics and statistics. You’ll also be able to choose another subject such as Accounting and Finance, International Relations or Marketing. If you wish, you can continue with this minor subject throughout your degree.

In the second year, you’ll progress to topics such as Micro and Macroeconomics and specialist modules such as Game Theory. Your final year sees you choosing up to eight modules taught by researchers active in that field. From Public Economics to International Trade, Health Economics to Sports Economics, you can tailor your studies to suit your aspirations. High-performing students also have the chance to write a dissertation. In fact, a large number of our students go on to study a Masters degree after completion of their BSc.

Throughout your degree, we’ll supply training in CV writing, interview assessment centres and telephone interviews. There’s also the option of a full-year industry placement between your second and final years. We are proud of our aspiring economists and aim to nurture the potential in every one of them.

Careers

Our degrees are designed to prepare you for a career in industry, business, finance, consultancy or government. Recent Economics graduates have joined banks and financial consultancies such as HSBC and Deloitte, while others have been employed on graduate schemes with major companies, including BAE and the Swire Group.

Many of our Economics students have gained places on postgraduate courses at top institutions and then pursued specialised careers as economists – for example, at the Bank of England, the Institute for Fiscal Studies, and in academia.
