Roughly half of what you study will be taught by Leeds University Business School, which is internationally renowned for the quality of its teaching, research and facilities. Your economics modules will give you in-depth understanding of micro and macroeconomics, which you can study to an advanced level. You'll get to grips with concepts including supply and demand and scarcity, and you'll study key techniques in econometrics.
Your mathematics modules will give you a solid grounding in core topics such as algebra and calculus. Optional modules, which you can choose from a wide range, allow you to explore topics in pure and applied mathematics, and statistics. Throughout, you'll develop a skillset that will prepare you for a successful career.
Application deadline details:
Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
