Course info

UCAS CODE L100
A degree in Economics can lead into many career areas. Although many graduates go onto work in the finance sector including banking, accountancy, tax advice and insurance and trading other roles that Economics graduates regularly go into include management, marketing, sales and advertising, human resources, IT and education making this degree very attractive to students who like the idea of being able to branch off into alternative areas.
