Studying Economics at UEA is a great way to set yourself up for a successful career after graduation.

Economics is a subject with a whole range of real-life applications, which is why we offer different programmes suited to different career paths and a great selection of optional modules.
Our curriculum is designed to offer an ideal combination of academic rigour and real-world relevance that enables you to sharpen your powers of reason whilst also preparing you for a career beyond university. These characteristics – academic excellence and practical application – are the guiding principles of all our programmes.
Our programmes also offer a balanced assessment structure involving innovative assessments that build a wide range of valuable skills and attributes highly valued by employers. We don’t just have our students write essays, we train them to write business reports, policy briefs and blogs, we help them develop and conduct extended data projects, deliver presentations, and participate in debates.


We work closely with Careers through a dedicated adviser.
