BSc (Hons) Economics (Study Abroad)
UCAS code: L101
Economics is a long-established discipline whose relevance to the world of business, government, international relations and academia is widely acknowledged. The design of our first-year courses accommodates students with an A-level background and those who have not studied Economics at school or college level. We train our students to analyse present day policy issues with the aid of the tools of information technology.
In this programme, your second year is spent at an approved university in North America or Australasia where you take equivalent courses for full credit towards your degree.
These are guidelines rather than fixed rules to be applied in all circumstances. Applicants with non-UK and other qualifications are treated on their individual merits.
A-levels: AAA inc Maths
Preference: Three A-levels
Key Skills: Not included in offer
GCSE: Maths and English Language, min grade A in both
International Baccalaureate: 36 points overall (with 16 points in 3 HL subjects)
Scottish Highers: AAABB
BTEC - DDD.
A good array of GCSE grades is also essential for all applicants.
Applicants whose first language is not English must normally achieve a mark of at least 6.5 in IELTS or 580 in TOEFL.
None of the above is applied mechanistically – the admissions tutor will also examine closely the rest of your application form, especially the reference and the personal statement.
Foundation/Access programmes for international students: we consider applicants who have completed the High School certificate in their home country with above average grades, and who follow a recognised Access or Foundation programme in the UK. For example we have accepted holders of FY qualifications from Bellerbys and the Warwick HEFP, with above average grades/marks.
The second year of your degree is spent at a university in North America or Australasia. You study broadly the same topics as if you were studying at Lancaster and these courses count fully towards your degree.
In Year 3, you take a minimum of six half-unit courses in Economics, chosen from the ECON 300 series.
