Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Economics (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects.Study economics for a constantly changing world. This degree offers formal and rigorous training in economic theory and real world application, and allows you to specialise in a key area of the modern economy. Today economics means change. New technologies constantly reconfigure how markets work. New emerging countries from around the world reshape the world economy. We encourage you to face these new and evolving challenges by thinking outside the box and marrying innovation with tradition. Goldsmiths is the ideal environment to explore economics in new and imaginative ways informed by our current research. The Institute of Management Studies has academics doing research not only in Economics and Political Economy, but also in Consumer Theory, Management, Business Psychology, Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. But the research community with which you will come in contact is much larger, as it includes leading experts from Sociology, Psychology, Computing, Media Studies, History, Politics, Design and other departments teaching courses in the relevant streams. We have a centre for interdisciplinary research in Economics & Political Economy (PERC) that organises lectures, seminars and a host of other events bringing celebrated speakers into Goldsmiths from around the world. Through lectures in IMS & PERC you'll have access to today's business leaders, economists and policy practitioners.
