  • The cost to study there can be high, but it is the same all over the United Kingdom, the university provides multiple accommodations with different price-range, but it is also really easy to find a private accommodation through a website specialised for students (unipol.com). The city is rather small but beautiful for a former working class city, the nightlife is huge and there are a few good museums to visit (City Museum, Art gallery and Royal Armouries). It is also very easy to take the bus, the train or go to the airport and visit some other place, there are also tons of organised travels.

Course programme

Our degrees have a modular structure. This means that compulsory modules provide you with the core knowledge and skills that you need, while optional and discovery modules allow you to shape your course to suit your personal interests and career aspirations.


Compulsory modules in Year 1 will give you a good grounding in economic theory and history, as well as the mathematical and statistical skills that you’ll need throughout your studies. You can explore economic issues in more depth through your choice of optional modules or study topics like finance or organisational behaviour.


Year 2 allows you to develop this knowledge in different aspects of economics, including industrial economics, econometrics and microeconomics and macroeconomics. You’ll also gain specific knowledge related to business economics, including why firms exist, corporate governance, what makes people work and how people make decisions. In addition, you’ll choose from a wide range of options, which include areas of economics that involve macroeconomic policy, growth, and international dimension.


The knowledge and skills you gain will provide the starting point for your final year, where you’ll look at public enterprise, regulation, and the strategies that business and corporations use alongside diverse options from behavioural economics to the political economy of work. You’ll also showcase your research and analytical skills through your dissertation – a major independent research project on a topic of your choice.
