Year 1 is about encouraging students to learn about what Economics is, why it is relevant and how it applies to all different aspects of our daily life. Year 1 is also used to teach the skills that will serve as a foundation for students to expand their knowledge of the economic issues that most interest them.
Year 2 is about the application of the skills learned in Year 1 to different fields of Economics. This includes topics such as Industrial Economics, International Economics and Political Economy. (Interested in specific module choices? Have a look at module options.)
Year 3 focuses on encouraging students to identify the specific areas of Economics that interest them. It usually includes a dissertation that provides students with a chance to develop economic ideas and theories and to consider in greater depth a specific aspect of economic behaviour.
