Economics (Study Abroad) BSc Hons
An understanding of economics gets to the heart of how the world works. Through our flexible programme, embedded within our wide-ranging Management School and delivered by high-quality researchers recognised for their teaching with the TEF Gold accreditation, you will tackle important questions: What makes some countries richer than others? How does society fund social care? Why are footballers paid so much?
Economics is highly-prized by employers in the private and public sectors, and we provide you with both the theoretical knowledge and practical application you need for your future career. Our degree weaves theory and evidence into policy analysis, allowing you to understand fundamental issues and topical concerns with an international perspective. Our place within the Management School provides a close relationship with other business disciplines and access to businesses and employers in the business world.
You do not need Economics A levels, as all first years study the Principles of Economics and Quantitative Methods for Economics, covering mathematics and statistics. The flexible degree structure means you can choose another subject such as Accounting and Finance, International Relations or Marketing as a minor subject, which you can continue to study throughout your degree.
In the second year, you will study at a partner university, usually in North America or Australasia. There are many advantages to studying abroad, including personal and educational development, experiencing a new culture, and enhanced employability. If you are considering further study, graduate programmes welcome study abroad candidates.
In your final year back in Lancaster, you choose up to eight modules taught by expert researchers working at the cutting-edge of the field. From Public Economics to International Trade and Health Economics, you can tailor your studies to suit your aspirations. High-performing students can choose to write a dissertation. Many of our best graduates go on to study a Masters degree.
We are proud of our aspiring economists and aim to nurture your potential. You will have support from our careers team, which includes a dedicated departmental careers coach who works with you from day one, helping with internships, placements and graduate employment. We will supply training in CV writing, interview assessment centres and telephone interviews, helping you with your future career ambitions.
Lancaster University will make reasonable endeavours to place students at an approved overseas partner university that offers appropriate modules which contribute credit to your Lancaster degree. Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster.
Lancaster University cannot accept responsibility for any financial aspects of the year abroad.
