Our BSc in Business Economics (with Foundation Year) combines a broad basis of economics study with a specific focus on how businesses operate, placing less emphasis on mathematical techniques than other economics programmes.
Many academics within the School of Economics are advisers to world-renowned organisations, meaning our teaching and research is at the forefront of the field and is influenced by real industry insights.
You will develop skills that are highly sought after in today’s challenging economic environment, as organisations strive to solve increasingly complex problems.
You will gain the tools needed to analyse a wide range of business problems such as how businesses interact, their role within the economy, and the strategic decisions taken by management.
The student experience at the School of Economics is vital to the success of our courses and, through a combination of lectures, tutorials, feedback and workshop sessions, you will be encouraged to express yourself and supported to achieve your full potential in a warm and friendly study environment.
We’re always looking to make it easier to access the education we offer, so we have launched the option of taking a degree with a foundation year.
A foundation year is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads in to a full degree programme. It’s a great option if:
• You don’t have the grades for a full degree course • You have non-traditional qualifications or experience • You’re starting university after some time away from education • You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study.
During a foundation year you’ll learn about your chosen subject, develop your study skills and get used to university life. On successful completion of your foundation year, you’ll be ready to progress to the first year of your degree course.
As a foundation year student, you’ll be a full student of the University and part of our community. You’ll have access to all our campus facilities and support.
