    The BSc Economics with Accountancy degree is relevant and attractive for those seeking a solid training in economic analysis and who wish to pursue an accounting career in business, management, or within organisations.

    The degree course shares the same economic core as the BSc Economics, enabling a similar choice of optional modules in economics. In addition, it provides the opportunity to take modules which specialise in Accounting and Finance, Information Systems for Management, Management Accounting and Business Finance, all taught by Norwich Business School.

    Teaching, Assessment and Feedback

    Teaching methods are designed to provide an in-depth knowledge of the subject, as well as developing the analytical, presentation, teamwork and communication skills sought by employers.

    A typical Economics module has two lectures and about one seminar per week. While lectures are attended by all students, seminars are held in smaller groups of 12-18 students to promote more student/teacher interaction. This will provide an opportunity for you to ask questions, discuss the economic issues the module deals with, and to give presentations on selected topics. Some seminars are in the form of computer lab sessions, and, in quantitative economics modules, students analyse economic data using statistical software packages.

    Assessment for most Economics' modules is usually a combination of coursework and a May-June examination, although some modules have coursework only (sometimes in the form of a project). For coursework you might be asked to write 2 essays at different times during the semester, or to complete a home assignment which might involve computing work, or to engage in a group presentation. Our Economics Guide to Study Skills contains information on essay writing, seminar participation, examination skills, and curriculum vitae preparation.

    Although all students are encouraged to work independently, we are happy to help students if there is a need for one-to-one tuition: you can drop in on the lecturer of each module during his or her weekly office hours, or email him or her for assistance. There are a variety of channels designed to provide students with feedback on modules and the degree programmes - these include the Economics Staff Student Liaison Committee where any issue relating to the academic or social well-being of UEA Economics students can be raised.

    Career Opportunities

    Economics offers excellent career prospects. In a survey of recent economics graduates, 83% were in long-term full-time employment, and 15% were undertaking further vocational or academic study (eg MA, MBA, PhD). The University of East Anglia provides a professional Careers Centre and, together with the School's Academic Careers Adviser, we will help students to choose their career path and develop their employability skills.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
