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.

    Testimonial from Zoe, Biosciences, UK, 2021, student at Cardiff University

    Cardiff really is surrounded by some scenic gems. It’s in the middle of everything and is so well connected with transport links that you can get pretty much everywhere and anywhere you want.

    I chose Cardiff because it felt right. It was the first open day I attended and even on that first visit I just really liked the feel of the city, with it already feeling like home.
