University of Kent has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Economics examines some of the profound issues in our times: economic growth and sustainable development, unemployment, poverty, financial and monetary crises, trade and aid. As a Kent Economics student, you analyse and discuss these crucial areas and are challenged to contribute to possible solutions. On this programme you also explore the economic tools and models used in financial markets and for forecasting. This degree introduces you to the tools that economists have developed in financial and money markets. Their work has been enormously influential in contributing to the development of financial instruments used by households, firms and governments when making decisions about saving or borrowing. You also study additional modules that examine the way in which economists construct and use mathematical and statistical models for forecasting and prediction. These can be used to help policymakers reach decisions concerning a range of economic problems. The School of Economics has particular strengths in the econometric analysis of microeconomic, macroeconomic and financial datasets. The first year of this programme introduces you to the way in which economists think about different issues and develops the kinds of tools that economists use for analysing real economic problems. In your second and final years, you take a combination of compulsory and optional modules. Our wide range of modules means you can tailor your degree to support your particular career ambitions; for example, you can choose modules that prepare you for life as a professional economist.
