Economists play a central role in everything from banking to government. You’ll have a host of career options once you complete your full degree. You’ll learn from economics experts. Our team includes a former Treasury adviser and a leading expert in Brexit and European politics. It’s an exciting time to study economics. You’ll explore the economic challenges, trends and opportunities of today to prepare you for work in the sector tomorrow. We work closely with employers such as AJ Bell and local governments to develop our courses. That means you’ll graduate from your full degree with the skills you need to get ahead. This course is designed to prepare you for studying on any of our economics pathways. It will help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to study for an honours degree, even if you don’t currently meet the academic requirements. Once you’ve passed, you’ll be ready to start your degree course. That means your degree will take four years, or five years if it includes a work placement or year studying abroad. **Features and Benefits** - **Adapt to university life** – develop your study skills, prepare for a full degree course and familiarise yourself with our city centre campus. - **Funding support** – you can apply for student finance (e.g. tuition fee loan, student loan and student maintenance grant) in the same way as other students. - **Latest research and practice** – learn from leading economists who are shaping economic development in Manchester, post-Brexit Britain and fast-growing European economies. - **Unique subjects** – this course goes beyond mainstream economics.
