Economics is an academic discipline that is highly thought of by universities and employers. You will learn about the impact of economic decisions on individuals and countries, both in the UK and internationally. You’ll learn how to analyse data, think critically about situations, and make informed decisions. You will study both Micro Economics, which focuses on the economic activity of individuals and companies, and Macro Economics, which is concerned with the economy as a whole.
Students progress to a wide range of university courses, including Economics, Finance, Business and Law. There are also some excellent apprenticeship routes in areas such as Banking and Accountancy. Economics graduates are the highest-paid in the UK, according to the Department of Education.
Students particularly enjoy the way economic theory constantly interacts with real world issues such as the impact of Covid-19, the return of in?ation and the economic effects of the war in Ukraine.
