Economics Undergraduate Study

Economics, as a discipline, probes the mechanism of society and explains the factors and processes that underpin production, exchange and distribution in order to effectively inform economic policy, as well as to understand the consequences of economic and social wellbeing.

Our undergraduate programmes provide the training in microeconomics, macroeconomics and quantitative methods that will enable you to pursue a successful career in an economics-related profession.
