What will I learn?

If you want to study economics at a British university but don’t have the correct qualifications, our four-year BA Economics with International Foundation Year programme enables you to undertake an undergraduate economics degree.You will complete a foundation year (called Year 0) before progressing onto our three-year BA Economics degree. This means you can apply for a single four-year visa that covers the whole duration of your studies.The foundation year is designed to equip you with the subject-specific and general study skills needed to cope with the demands of undergraduate study. Our high-quality teaching is geared towards the needs of students from a wide range of educational backgrounds.**Careers**Our graduates are in high demand as a result of the analytical skills and specialist knowledge of economics they develop through this course. 92% of graduates from the Department of Economics are in work or further study within 15 months of the end of their course [1].

Others have entered related and non-related careers in finance, business, marketing, publishing, PR and media.You can choose to study your degree over four years with a paid Professional Placement Year or by applying to spend a full academic year studying abroad.
