Economics (with Foundation Year option) BSc (Hons)

Economics is not just money or banking, it is a way of thinking and understanding human action under conditions of uncertainty and scarcity. In a world of fast-paced capital movements, quantitative easing, macroeconomic instability, Brexit and its effect on trade, and continuing issues of the euro as a monetary union, it is crucial to understand what economics means at a basic level.

This course covers the fundamentals of economics taught from a quantitative basis, including an understanding of economic thinking and systems, an appreciation of financial approaches, and related mathematical, statistical, and analytical skills essential for starting a career in the global economic and financial community.

Foundation year: We have a foundation year option for UK students who do not meet the entry requirements for the degree course. This additional year of study will give you a grounding in the general business and management skills required for Economics, building your confidence, knowledge and skills for further study. After successful completion of the foundation year, you will progress to the full degree.
