Course info

UCAS CODE L100
Our Economics course provides a sound understanding of core, pure and applied economics. However, while you study economics in considerable depth in this specialised degree, you employ ideas and techniques from many other disciplines too; including mathematics and statistics, history, sociology and politics. Therefore, our graduates are extremely well-qualified for a wide range of jobs and further courses.
