Course details
Course UCAS code: L101
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
The Brunel Economics BSc combines a thorough grounding in economic theory with the practical skills needed to apply that knowledge to business, industrial, financial or government environments. You'll learn how markets operate from microeconomic and macroeconomic perspectives and how trade and business priorities shape the ways societies function. Special attention will be given to financial marketins and the banking sector, as well as an introduction to accounting. Further, you'll develop the analytical, quantitative, statistical and computing skills used to predict how societies, governments, businesses and households will respond to events, trends and market behaviour. You will study statistics and econometrics and develop skills in data presentation, analysis and modelling. This training will use analytical packages widely used by business and financial institutions such as SAS, EViews, Bloomberg, Reuters and STATA. We offer two study options. You can choose three years full-time or four years full-time with a one-year professional placement between years two and three that will give you hands-on experience in a real-life working environment. You can tailor the final year of your course to specialise in an area of particular interest. Our economics undergraduate degree is accredited by ACCA and CIMA, and graduates will receive exemptions from professional papers should they wish to continue their study to become a chartered accountant. The analytical, quantitative and transferable skills you'll gain from your Brunel degree are highly valued by employers and will prepare you for a wide range of career and postgraduate study options in the areas of economics, business and finance.

Great staff and a mixed, international crowd of students and staff. The union offers plenty of great opportunities to volunteer and join societies that really help you experience new things and meet new people. The campus is really tight so everyone gets on and you’ll make loads of friends. Uxbridge is alright, campus wise, with Liquid and the Union doing most of your nights out and London an hour away on the train if you fancy the big city to do some shopping or the like.
