Recognising the importance of statistical analysis in its two core disciplines, our Economics and Finance degree includes compulsory modules in econometrics. Econometrics is the application of statistical and mathematical techniques to verify or disprove theories and analyse the impact of policies and events on the health of the economy. You will take at least one econometrics module in each of years one and two, and at least two modules in econometrics in your final year. By coordinating teaching across the school we are able to offer you a genuinely integrated degree in economics and finance so that you can study both disciplines in depth. In 2015 (the most recent graduation cohort) 74 per cent of students on BSc Economics and Finance graduated with a 2.1 or first-class degree, well above the national average for finance degrees of 61 per cent (source: Higher Education Statistics Agency Limited, 2015).
