Awarded by: University of London
This new BSc programme is designed to provide a core of rigorous, technically demanding, yet applications-oriented, skills in economics. Students exiting the degree will have acquired enough knowledge and skills to equip them for professions requiring economic literacy and with the analytical tools expected from a top economics degree.
This is a rigorous course that combines an open admissions policy with high standards. Where there are gaps in your previous education we will fill those gaps, but you will also achieve the same standard of training in the core skills of economics as in any other economics degree.
