How will government policy decisions affect economic growth? What impact does immigration and migration have on the labour market? How can companies accurately forecast return on investment? Understanding why we do what we do is key to the economist's role, with econometrics allowing us to analyse theoretical models and turn data into actionable information. On our BSc Economics and Econometrics, you will learn how to use statistical and mathematical models to test economic theories through the practical application of real-world data analysis. You will discover how to analyse the complex relations between economic phenomena so that you can accurately predict future trends. You can tailor your studies to your career aspirations through optional modules that allow you to specialise in areas such as economic policy analysis, international trade 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.
Your first year aims to provide you with a solid grounding in introductory economic theory, mathematics and statistics, with emphasis on the relevance of such methods to the study of economic questions of cultural, political and social importance. This is achieved through a range of modules that explore current economic issues and perspectives as well as core modules in mathematical economics and econometrics. Advancing your knowledge of micro and macroeconomics, your second year core modules also cover econometrics. You will focus on econometric theory, establishing a thorough knowledge of the matrix algebra of the general linear regression model and the statistical properties of time series data, models and forecasts. With core modules and a dissertation accounting for half of your third year of study, you will cover both theoretical and applied aspects of econometrics at an advanced level. The core aspects of your final year provide a detailed treatment of the models and techniques used in the analysis of time series and cross section data. Many of these were pioneered by 2003 Nobel Laureate and Nottingham alumnus, Sir Clive Granger. You will also have the opportunity to select additional modules from a wide range of specialist options.
