You will enjoy these courses if you are interested in understanding how people make decisions about resource allocation at individual, corporate and national level; how markets work, how they fail and what can be done about it.
If you are scientifically minded and good at maths, you will enjoy the rigorous analytical approach we take to understanding how the economy works.
Our courses will suit you if, while pursuing an economics degree, you wish to study related disciplines such as accounting, finance, management, philosophy or politics as an integrated part of that degree (either as part of a Joint Honours degree or as optional units within a Single Honours degree).
You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS

Minimum required score (Grade B):
C1 Advanced is a Cambridge English Qualification. It reports on the Cambridge English Scale between 142 and 210. You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and for Use of English. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. Universities and colleges may ask you to achieve a specific score, either overall or for a particular skill.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
