The School of Economics boasts an exceptional reputation. It is home to a thriving and vibrant environment in which you can learn and develop, with close staff-student interactions at its heart.
Whichever level of study you choose, we will help you unlock your potential.
Staff-student relations are excellent and the School prides itself on creating a warm and friendly environment in which all its members are able to realise their full potential.
Teaching on the courses is by lectures, tutorials, seminars and workshop sessions. The purpose is to use, rather than merely to study, economics. In tutorials, you will be encouraged to present your own ideas and to develop the verbal skills that will stand you in good stead for the future.
Classes and workshops are essentially practical sessions in which you will develop the ability to apply and use economics.
A well-earned reputation
