We take economic and finance decisions every day of our lives, and in turn are affected by the decisions of other people and institutions. The BSc (Hons) course in Economics and Finance aims to provide you with the understanding of economic theory and knowledge of the financial foundations of firms, financial markets and institutions to enable you to analyse these economic decisions and how others’ decisions impact upon yourself.
The foundation year of this course is designed to offer applicants who do not have the required qualifications, a programme which will equip them with a robust toolkit of academic, digital and personal skills required for successful study in higher education. It also provides an understanding of, and insight into, a range of disciplines that underpin their chosen programme of study. In the foundation year students will develop their ability to gain the most out of structured in-class study, and also to manage and evaluate their own independent learning. This wide range of transferable skills is of immense value in both undergraduate study and graduate employment. Upon successful completion of the foundation year, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of their subject area to degree level.
