What affect does foreign outsourcing have on our domestic economy? How do trade policies govern transactions between nations? What impact could an overseas financial crisis have on us? Understanding why we do what we do is key to the economist's role, with international economics specifically looking at economic interactions between countries. On our BSc Economics and International Economics, you will study the key concepts of economics such as macroeconomics, microeconomics, mathematics and international trade and gain the core analytical and quantitative techniques required by economics graduates. You can tailor your studies to your career aspirations through optional modules that allow you to specialise in areas such as economic policy analysis, industrial economics and behavioural economics. You can also enhance your CV by studying abroad at our campuses in China or Malaysia or with a partner institution in locations like Australia, Canada or Japan. You will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to stand out to employers as you start your career.
During your first year, you'll build your foundational knowledge in economics and the economics of integration. A key focus will be placed on the key principles and the largest customs union in the world: the European Union. We have three streams for quantitative economics/econometrics to suit your mathematical background and preferences. This year will help develop your knowledge of the theoretical framework for international trade and money, including topics such as globalisation, off‑shoring, monetary policy and the business cycle. There is a choice of quantitative pathways and those who wish to emphasise the international dimension of their degree can apply to spend a semester of their second year studying abroad, taking similar modules to your counterparts back in Nottingham or expanding your knowledge through other options. With core modules and a dissertation accounting for half of your third year of study, you will cover both theoretical and applied aspects of international economics at an advanced level. You will also have the opportunity to select additional modules from a wide range of specialist options.
