Economics with a Placement Year - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** How do the choices of individuals and firms combine to drive the modern global economy? And how can this economy be best aligned with human goals? By asking these questions you'll get under the skin of business and politics. You'll develop an understanding of what makes the world tick, and discover how economic policy affects social change. And you'll start forming your own ideas about how to make our world a better place. An economics degree is ideal for you if you have a curious and questioning nature. You'll enjoy working with numbers, but at the same time, you’re fascinated by human behaviour. You might know exactly what career you want to go into – or you may know that an economics degree keeps your options open, possibly more than any other. On this course you'll typically spend between nine and 12 months of your third year in a full-time placement, gaining invaluable working experience and employability skills in a relevant area of your choice. Although you'll be expected to secure your own work placement, dedicated staff within the School and the Careers Service will support and assist you throughout the process of searching, applying for, and ultimately gaining a position. Furthermore support will also be provided whilst you are on placement and when you return to complete your studies in your fourth (final) year. Placements are just one aspect of the work-based opportunities available to our students. Over the last few years several of our students have secured internships during their studies at several top companies and organisations including EY, Government Economic Services, Handelsbanken, ONS, Willis Towers Watson and many others. **Overview** Learn how the economy works and how to improve it with our flagship degree programme. This course is your chance to question everything and challenge yourself to not just analyse the ideas of others, but to come up with and defend your own theories too. You'll explore all areas of the economy, from microeconomic and macroeconomic perspectives. You will also learn quantitative methods, economic modelling techniques, and how to collect and analyse data. Most importantly, you'll discover what really excites you about economics. You’ll be able to take your studies in the direction you choose with optional modules in economics and finance, which cover areas such as labour, public policy, competition economics, corporate finance, financial markets, derivatives, risk management, history of economic thought, the economics and business of sport, alternative investments, and environmental economics. In this way you can build your degree to suit your developing interests and ambitions and ensure you leave UEA with a degree that matches your goals. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
