Economics is a diverse subject to study, as it can touch upon areas of finance, politics, business, history, and other social sciences. In many ways, it can cover every aspect of the way we live our lives.

This programme provides students with a detailed knowledge of Economics, and skills to be able to apply the knowledge in a practical sense. It covers both microeconomic (the actions/behaviours of an individual “unit”, such as an individual company, household etc) and macroeconomic issues (a much wider view of economic actions/behaviours, for example Governments).

The course will also give students the chance to think about the design of various policy, from an economic perspective. Assessing both economic institutions and economies in a practical context.

  • You may incur additional costs in the course of your education at the University over and above tuition fees in an academic year such as laptops, Stationary and additional resources.

Why Study this Degree

Companies will welcome graduates who understand the relevant theories, practises, models and tools associated with Economics, however, it’s vital for them to recruit graduates who understand how to put these theories into practice, understand how and when to use certain theoretical models, understand their limitations and have the forward thinking to develop new solutions.
