**Why study this course?**
Our Economics (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0). It’s the ideal course if you’re interested in studying economics at undergraduate level but you are unable to meet the entry requirements or don't have the traditional qualifications required to start a standard degree.
London Met has an excellent reputation for delivering economics degree courses. The Guardian has ranked London Met's economics courses second in London in its university league tables 2020.
**More about the course**
The foundation year of this degree course will give you a sound base in economics, accounting and business, ensuring you’re well-prepared to explore more specific areas of economics during your subsequent years of study.
The modules on this foundation year are shared between a number of other courses, allowing you to meet students with other academic interests and share ideas.
Following your foundation year, which is also designed to improve your communication and writing skills, you’ll have the opportunity to examine subjects including economic growth and sustainability, financial markets, banking and financial crises, econometrics and more.
In Year 1, 2 and 3 of the course you will study the same core modules – and have access to the same optional modules – as those who study our Economics BSc (Hons) course. There will also be opportunities to study abroad and gain valuable work experience.
Taught by experts in the field of economics, some of whom are advisers to major financial institutions, you’ll be well-equipped for a career in finance on graduation. You will graduate with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.
