The Economics and Finance course offers you the opportunity to combine the main elements of Economics with the study of Finance.

The programme emphasises the close relationship between Economics and Finance, and places those subjects in their broader organisational, social and political contexts.

You will also be given the opportunity to pursue specialist areas of particular interest.

A mixture of core and optional modules will be employed, which allows you to follow certain areas of interest, while acquiring a sound knowledge of the main elements of both subjects. Equal weighting is given to both subjects throughout the three years of the degree.

The programme will provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge, both theoretical and practical, through the professional placement year, to take on responsible positions early in a variety of careers in various sectors of banking and finance.
