Course summary

Open to UK and EU students only, our BSc Financial Economics (including foundation year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. Our compulsory English language and academic skills module supplements your academic subjects. Financial crisis. Unemployment. Immigration. Market competition. Economics helps us shape the present and improve our future. You apply the core principles of economics to the study of banks and other financial institutions, financial markets (such as the stock exchange) and financial instruments. You study all aspects of economics and mathematics and explore quantitative research methods. Our BSc differs from BA Financial Economics in that you must take mathematical modules in your third year, in addition to the range of modules in economics, capital markets, financial innovation and monetary policy. In your final year you take Economic Analysis of Asset Prices, Economics of Bond and Derivatives Markets and International Money and Finance.
