Bachelors 2017 in Scotland United Kingdom. What causes inflation? Can unemployment be reduced? Can tax be equitable and efficient? These are some of the questions economists try to answer.

English language requirements If English is not your first language you must have one of the following qualifications as evidence of your English language skills: IELTS: 6.0 with 5.5 minimum in each skill Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE): Grade C Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE): Grade C Pearson Test of English (Academic): 54 with 51 in each component IBT TOEFL: 80 with no subtest less than 17 If you need to improve your English language skills before you enter this course, our partner INTO University of Stirling offers a range of English language courses. These intensive and flexible courses are designed to improve your English ability for entry to this degree. Structure and content You will take Economics plus two other subjects in Year 1. Economics may be studied as part of a General degree or to Honours level, either on its own or in combination with other subjects. You will have numerous opportunities to develop appropriate work-related skills at every stage of your studies, culminating in the Professional Development and Practice module in Semester 8 which helps you prepare for entering the workplace. Semesters 1 - 4 You will take the following core modules: Introductory Microeconomics: This module analyses how individual markets work, how prices are set, how resources are allocated in an economy and how firms and households respond to changing market conditions Introductory Macroeconomics: Macroeconomics is concerned with issues relating to the economy as a whole such as the general standard of living, unemployment and inflation You will move on to study Intermediate Micro-economics and Intermediate Macroeconomics, which build on the work done in the introductory modules. You will also take Introduction to Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Business in Semester 4. Semesters 5 - 8 All Honours students take core advanced modules designed to develop their knowledge and understanding of the central methods of economic analysis and major policy issues. These are: Using Economic Data Advanced Macroeconomics Advanced Microeconomics Economic Policy In the final year, you will write a dissertation on a subject of your choice. The remainder of the course consists of a number of options, such as: Financial Economics; Monetary Economics and Environmental Economics. Combined Honours students take the same core modules as Single Honours students but replace some of the Economics options with modules in their other subject. Elective Modules ECNU3NV - Environmental Economics ECNU3EE - Energy Economics ECNU3AX - Applied Economics I ECNU3AY - Applied Economics II ECNU3MY - Monetary Economics ECNU3FE - Financial Economics Delivery and assessment There are typically two or three lectures per week on each module. You also attend a weekly meeting in a smaller group, either a tutorial or a seminar, for each module. Your final grade for each module is based on 40 percent for coursework and 60 percent for the examination. Usually the coursework consists of two class tests and some tutorial preparation. In the first two years, a good performance in your coursework gains you exemption from the examination. Study abroad opportunities You have the opportunity to study abroad through Stirling's well-established connections with several international universities. Strengths A high standard of teaching Teaching provision in Economics has been assessed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education and achieved the highest possible rating of ‘commendable’ in all aspects. Many of our lecturers have an international reputation in their specialisms and are at the forefront of research. These strengths are reflected in the modules we offer and underline our commitment to quality in teaching. Strong research improves teaching quality. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise, 15% of our research was rated as world-leading and a further 45% as internationally excellent, placing us in the top four Economics units of assessment in Scotland and the top 25 in the UK. Flexible degree courses The Stirling degree is modular and therefore highly flexible. You are not committed to taking the course for which you applied. You do not need to commit yourself to a particular course before the end of your second year. In the third and fourth years there is a range of courses available that allow you to specialise in Economics or to combine the study of Economics with one or two other subjects. Useful skills The structure of our degrees helps to develop useful skills. Assessment is based on coursework as well as examinations. This helps to build up independent learning skills. Communication skills are developed in tutorials where students present arguments orally. Our quantitative modules develop skills in using computers and presenting statistically based arguments. Most Honours students write a dissertation in their final year on which they work independently with a staff supervisor. A good performance can enhance career prospects as many employers and postgraduate admission selectors are particularly looking for the ability to work independently on a project. Good information about your progress The Stirling system of basing grades partly on coursework marked during the semester and on awarding grades for each module taken at the end of each semester means that you are kept well-informed about your progress throughout your university career. A degree result that fairly reflects all your work at Honours level In determining the class of an Honours degree, examiners take into account the grades achieved in all the modules taken in the third and fourth years. There are no final examinations covering work in earlier semesters - many students only do a dissertation in their final semester and have no exams at all at the end of their fourth year. Thus your degree result depends on a range of work done over two years, rather than solely on your performance in examinations concentrated in a few days right at the end of your university career. The rules that the Examiners use to determine the class of degree are published, so you can work out semester by semester what class of degree you are likely to get, and make adjustments to your work effort to achieve the result you want. Career opportunities Economic graduates rank among top 10 earners A Which? University report (April 2015) highlights that Economics graduates rank 7th in the top subjects for graduate starting salaries. Where are our graduates now?
