Economics is an absorbing, interesting and relevant social science providing answers to everyday questions about the economy through a logical and questioning approach.
The subject helps students to develop an analytical, logical, and debating approach to their study.
A course in economics teaches students to think clearly about how economic forces affect both how business works and how governments operate. It assists students in many career paths within Industry, the City and Government and is highly valued by employers.
All occupations whether in the arts or science have to work and exist within a business and economic context and so an understanding of these forces is useful for all employees.
Economics A level is available to students who have reached a minimum standard of 6.5 in IELTS at the point of entry to the course. It is not necessary to have studied economics previously but this would be helpful.
