Course Summary:
At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Economics and Finance. This course will provide you with the opportunity to become experienced in using professional software tools, such as Bloomberg and Stata. These tools will enable you to analyse and interpret real economic and financial data. This programme will enable you to develop and demonstrate practical skills, which are highly attractive to employers. You will also have the option to take a placement year between years two and three of your studies to enhance your experience and knowledge. You will explore the economic behaviour of households, businesses and governments, the functioning of markets and the effects of fiscal and monetary policies. You will examine the behaviour of financial institutions, such as banks, hedge funds and portfolio managers, their instruments and how they interact in markets. Wider contemporary issues such as the ethics of banking and lending markets will also be analysed. The course will equip you with a range of skills and capabilities, both subject-related and more general lifelong skills, such as analytical ability, critical thinking and advanced numeracy. Every year, at least one statistical module is compulsory, to prepare you to take advantage of the professional opportunities made possible by the Big Data revolution. All these skills will help you prepare for a graduate career and/or for further study. You will have a foundation for many careers in business and government. You may become an economist in the City or with the prestigious Government Economics Service. You could pursue a career in banking, insurance or management consultancy or use your transferable skills in an indirectly related career of your choice. You will also be able to go on to study Economics or Finance at postgraduate level.

With the largest campus in the UK, Keele University easily manages to fit everything that a student may need into a short walk away. But if do you need to go into the local towns, buses are available every 20 minutes that go all around the local areas. Because there are no large cities on your doorstep, the SU works tirelessly to put on amazing nights, including the 'Flirt' nights which are always popular. The uni is high-ranking in all the different league tables, and is one that values both education and research meaning that students are valued by well-informed professors.

    It has been very enjoyable and I would not hesitate to recommend Keele to anyone who wants a quieter and friendly campus.
