Our Co-Heads of Department say:
"The Department of Economics wants to extend well wishes to all current and prospective students. We hope that you and your loved ones remain healthy during this global crisis. Covid-19 has brought about a period of global uncertainty. We understand that a degree choice is one of the most important life decisions, and we assure you that delivering a world-class education is first and foremost on our minds as we make preparations for next year. We plan to run all our advertised degree programmes in the academic year 2021/22 and are looking forward to a warm SOAS Economics on-campus welcome in September 2021.
As a department we have been working closely with our students to build globally-relevant, thorough and critical degree programmes in Economics. It is fantastic to see our current students take advantage of some of these opportunities. These include our Maths workshop, tailored to those that might require additional Maths support during their degree; our integrated undergraduate Singapore Summer school (SOAS covers the fees and return flight); our peer-mentorship and Economics ambassador programmes, to name just a few.
You will no doubt have questions about university life and your potential studies with us. If you are an undergraduate prospective student, please contact our Undergraduate admissions tutors, Dr. Sophie Van Huellen at firstname.lastname@example.org and Mr Angelos Diamantopoulos at email@example.com. If you are a postgraduate prospective student and have questions about your programme, please contact the programme convenor. You can find out who the convenor is by following the links on the SOAS Economics Programme page (scroll down to find the convenor). They will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your forthcoming studies, and can advise on core and optional modules.
We invite you to familiarise yourself with what we have to offer by browsing our webpages (click through the links on the left), following us on Twitter, and attending our events, most of which are available as recordings here. And, please join us at one of our forthcoming Open Events. We hope these will persuade you to join our close-knit community of budding economists from across the globe. You’ll be challenged to think differently and to deploy economic theory and evidence to understand the big economic questions of our era. There is no better time to become a SOAS economist!”
