Study international development within the context of microeconomics, macroeconomics and quantitative empirical analysis. Economics graduates are in demand by employers and among the best paid nationally and internationally. By the time you finish your degree, you will have an understanding of economic development and its links with poverty and inequality. You will be familiar with key theories, as well as empirical evidence on trade, investment and economic growth. You will be able to evaluate evidence produced through the use of experimental economics to study human behaviour. And you will have the necessary skills to link economic variables to the broader sociopolitical processes and environmental challenges affecting different regions in the world. Approximately half of our undergraduates decide to spend three to four months overseas on the Development Work Experience module in their third year, working on a development project. An overseas experience will provide you with valuable insights and practical experience in a different country, and a chance to develop personal skills that are welcomed by employers. Destinations span Africa, Latin America, North America, Europe and Australasia.
