About this program

Economics (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Economics (Including Foundation Year) BA (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0). It’s the ideal course if you’re interested in studying economics at undergraduate level but you are unable to meet the entry requirements or don't have the traditional qualifications required to start a standard degree.

The foundation year of this degree course will give you a sound base in economics, accounting and business, ensuring you’re well-prepared to explore more specific areas of economics during your subsequent years of study.

Taught by experts in the field of economics, some of whom are advisers to major financial institutions, you’ll be well-equipped for a career in finance on graduation. You will graduate with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.
