New College of the Humanities has opted into the TEF and received a Provisional award.
Our Economics major encourages you to think critically about the building blocks of the discipline of economics, and enables you to understand economic events and decisions in the real world. The key aim of all Economics courses at the College is threefold. Firstly, they encourage you to think rigorously about economic theory. Secondly, they develop your quantitative skills in order to engage with the subject as it is commonly practised. Finally, they help you to understand economic conditions in different institutional, geographic and soci-economic settings. The Economics with Politics & International Relations BSc is designed to teach you how to think critically about how the world operates, with a particular focus on governments and political institutions within them. An advanced understanding of economics will give you key insights into political decision-making and policy. This will be complemented by your study of political theory, the organisation of government, and international relations for your minor.
- Introduction to Economics

Additional entry requirements
An admissions adviser will review your application, reference, and will decide if they would like to invite you for interview. Interviews take the form of a “taster” tutorial, which enables us to assess if you would flourish in the tutorial system and for you to ascertain whether you enjoy this method of teaching. Most students find this taster tutorial to be very enjoyable and a great opportunity to discuss a subject you are passionate about with a university lecturer.
