Course summary

Graduates who understand the commercial and economic environment and who are also highly numerate are in short supply. If you enjoy solving problems and you’re interested in the practical application of economics and mathematics, this degree course could be what you’re looking for. It will give you a thorough grounding in mathematical, statistical and computational skills, and a sound knowledge of economic theory – together with a good understanding of economic issues. Key features of the course

  • Explores fundamental questions about our physical and economic world
  • Teaches analytical and model building skills applicable to a variety of contexts
  • Develops essential skills to solve real problems and make sound judgments – from everyday choices about personal finances, to high-level strategic decisions in employment
  • Broadens your experience of using appropriate mathematical and statistical software


This degree has three stages, each comprising 120 credits. In Stage 1 you’ll be introduced to the basics of mathematics and statistics. Next, in Stage 2, you’ll study modules covering economics, statistical analysis and mathematical methods. Finally, in Stage 3, you’ll further advance your knowledge of statistics and economics and conclude your degree with a mathematics module chosen from a range of options.

Qualification requirements

There are no qualification requirements for this course.

Before you register for this qualification, it is essential to check that you have the appropriate mathematical skills. Take a look at our Maths Help study resources to brush up your mathematical skills in preparation for our Are you ready? quiz. If you can answer most of the questions, or could do them with a quick reminder (because the topic is familiar to you but you can’t quite remember the details), then you are ready. If you achieved a very high score, our intensive start route may be an option for you. First complete our intensive start Are you ready? quiz to check if you have the necessary experience and confidence with mathematics.
