Study with us
The Economics Division is a vibrant department with a tradition for teaching economics that is current, innovative, realistic, policy relevant and pluralistic. Our programmes combine a core of technical skills with a range of research-informed specialisms.
We support students to become independent, critical thinkers prepared for employment and further study. Graduates apply their skills in finance, business and government and many also go on to study at Masters and PhD level.
