We at Reading believe in innovative teaching in economics. Not only do we want to produce the next generation of economists, but we want you to find a real passion for the subject.
The University of Reading is ranked 10th in the UK in Business and Economics subjects (Times Higher Education World University Rankings by Subject 2024, United Kingdom providers only).
100% of our students said teaching staff were very good or good at explaining things (National Student Survey 2023, 100% of respondents studying BSc Economics with a Placement).
Economics is built on strong theoretical foundations and we build on this by emphasising the application of economics to the real world and real-world issues and a equip you with the necessary tools to do so.
