UK Economics Courses

Introduction to Economics

London is one of the leading global financial centres in the world, and studying economics close to where many of its theories base their origins can be of a huge advantage to any international student. Some of the world’s largest banks and accountancy firms operate in the UK, and upon completion of study there are a large number of opportunities for economic graduates to pursue.

During study, students will develop their problem solving, data analysis, computing and written and oral presentation skills, all abilities which are highly regarded and sought after in today’s economic climate. English is considered the language of world finance, and you will reap the benefits later in your career of having studied here.
