Economics University of Bristol

We are pioneers of the innovative 'core econ' (http://www.core-econ.org/) approach to teaching economics, which seeks to reconnect the study of economics with our experience of real life.

A broad range of units give you the opportunity to study varied areas such as:

environmental economics
game theory
globalisation and development
the history of economic thought
industrial economics
international economics
labour economics
macroeconomic theory and policy
and courses from other departments within the school.
In all three years you will study econometrics, which involves the analysis of economic relationships using empirical data. Econometrics builds on ideas taken from statistics, maths and economic theory and is a key part of all our degrees.

In 2015 (the most recent graduation cohort), 89 per cent of students on our economics degrees graduated with at least an upper second-class degree, well above the national average of 74 per cent (source: Higher Education Statistics Agency, 2015). 31 per cent achieved a first-class degree.
