Students studying in Economics develop a wide range of practical skills in investigation, information management and presentation. Employers value such transferable skills for their use in analysis, decision-making and communication.
You will receive a rigorous grounding in economic theory, solid traning in quantitative subjects and the opportunity to study in depth a number of problems and issues which have a crucial impact on society: unemployment and inflation; poverty and inequality; international trade and globalisation; the causes and consequences of economic growth; and the role and function of business at the local, national and international level.
The programme aims to meet the opportunity in the market for employment by international organisations of graduates with sophisticated understanding and application of economic theory to international contexts, business, markets and institutions.
Direct entry to Year 2 and 3 is available for qualified applicants. Students on this programme may apply to participate in overseas exchanges with our Erasmus partners.
The aims of the programme are:

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Applicants should have:
A minimum of 300 UCAS points or equivalent
PLUS, GCSEs at grade C or above in English and Mathematics OR Application of Numbers Key Skill level 2 and Communication (English)
Applicants who do not have English as their first language require IELTS 5.5 (or equivalent)
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
