The study of economics enables you to develop a deeper understanding of the world around us that is as valuable as it is interesting.

Economics has been defined at the study of the allocation of scarce resources between competing claims and needs. You will explore the nature of markets and their role in allocating resources in a modern economy. You will use the concepts of supply and demand to analyse markets as well as investigating the central role of the governments when markets fail and examine the performance of the UK economy. 

You will focus on an understanding and analysis of the labour market and business structures and investigate the role of the government and examine key issues and policies affecting economic performance.
