About the course

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.

Why choose us

New to Ludlow College for 2023, Economics is an excellent subject both for developing analytical skills and for building understanding of the wider world. It is an excellent complement to other humanities and social sciences subjects, or Maths, at A level; it offers outstanding progression opportunities via further study at university or apprenticeships.

What you could do next

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.

Popular modules
