This course will provide you with a core set of technically demanding, yet applications-oriented, skills in financial economics and an extensive knowledge of the financial sector. You will acquire the knowledge and skills needed for working in professions requiring economic and financial literacy. You will also gain hands-on experience in academic research and data analysis, as a practical project is an integral part of the degree.
This is a rigorous course that combines an open admissions policy with high standards. Where there are gaps in your previous education we will fill those gaps, but you will also achieve the same standard of training in the core skills of finance and economics as in any other financial economics degree in the UK. The course is fairly demanding in terms of its use of quantitative techniques. If you have not studied maths for some time, we offer an intensive two-week evening preliminary or refresher course prior to the start of the degree.
The course features two pathways, which allow you to focus either on the technical or the applied aspects of financial economics.
This course is also available for part-time evening study over four years.
- The programme offers a well-integrated interdisciplinary core, allowing you to obtain a broad and balanced perspective, while the unique two-pathway structure allows you to tailor your studies and focus on either the technical or the applied aspects of financial economics.
- In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), more than half of our research outputs in Economics were ranked world-leading or internationally excellent.
- We have an excellent reputation for the quality of our teaching, providing training for employers such as the Treasury and the Bank of England.
- You will be taught by academics who are professional practitioners in the world of economics and international finance, and who provide specialist advice and in-house training for government departments and City firms and banks.
- The Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics brings together research and teaching in economics, finance, mathematics and statistics in a single department, which creates significant inter-disciplinary synergies.
