Description of Economics BSc (Econ) (Hons)
If you see yourself working as an advisor in a national or international agency, as a teacher or a journalist, or if you simply wish to keep your options open before going on to a career in business or the professions, the economics programme will be an attractive alternative.

An economics degree gives you a perfect opportunity to study these issues. It also permits you to take courses in politics, law and the humanities so as to broaden your perspective further.
- A minimum of 240 points at A-level or the equivalent school leaving qualification.
- A minimum of five subjects, including Mathematics and English, at grade C or above at GCSE, or the equivalent.
- The School is able to be flexible for mature students and certain approved professional qualifications may also be considered as a qualification for entry.
