Program Description

BSc Economics (Hons)

Students studying in Economics develop a wide range of practical skills in investigation, information management, and presentation. Employers value such transferable skills for their use in analysis, decision-making, and communication.

You will receive a rigorous grounding in economic theory, solid training in quantitative subjects and the opportunity to study in depth a number of problems and issues which have a crucial impact on society: unemployment and inflation; poverty and inequality; international trade and globalisation; the causes and consequences of economic growth; and the role and function of business at the local, national and international level.



The programme aims to meet the opportunity in the market for employment by international organizations of graduates with sophisticated understanding and application of economic theory to international contexts, business, markets, and institutions.

Direct entry to Year 2 and 3 is available for qualified applicants. Students on this programme may apply to participate in overseas exchanges with our Erasmus partners.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide expertise and training in the principles of economics and their applications and a firm foundation of knowledge about the workings of actual economies
  • To provide knowledge of the mathematical and econometric methods needed for economic analysis and to train students in accessing and analyzing economic data
  • To provide the student with an understanding of the role of domestic and international institutions in shaping economic and business decisions.
