The School of Economics at UEA is one of the top-ranked economics departments in the UK, proudly combining an internationally-leading reputation for research with unparalleled standards in teaching and academic support for our students. We are the only economics department to be ranked “Top 10” both for Research Outputs and for Student Satisfaction:

- Top 10 for Overall Student Satisfaction in Economics (National Student Survey, NSS 2019).
We are known worldwide for our ground-breaking research in behavioural and experimental economics, and for our expertise in competition policy: work that leads the field, informs policymakers and makes headlines. We also have a global reputation for research excellence in economic theory, applied econometrics, finance, and in policy areas of environment, resources, conflict and migration.
Our research leads our teaching and we are at the forefront of developments in economics as a taught discipline. We have expertise in - and commitment to - your learning, your employability and to a fantastic student experience. Within the School we enjoy a wonderful sense of community. We were the first Economics Department in England to achieve the Athena SWAN Bronze Award, and we offer a friendly, diverse environment, which we hope will be the perfect setting for you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
