Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

Our teaching is heavily informed by research and combines academic rigour with practical relevance. While our internationally recognised faculty consists of academics who are at the forefront of knowledge within their field. They bring the lessons learned from their most recent research into the classroom, giving you access to critical business thinking and contemporary real life examples and scenarios.

We will provide your teaching and learning resources, and will be responsive to your needs and views. For your part, you will need to put in the necessary amount of work both during and outside formal teaching sessions, and make good use of the facilities provided.

Most modules involve a mixture of lectures and small group teaching (called classes, seminars, workshops or tutorials). 

Lectures provide an overview of the key concepts and frameworks for a topic, equipping you to carry out independent research for the seminars and to develop your own ideas. Seminars provide an opportunity for you to explore the ideas outlined in the lectures. Seminars may take various formats, including plenary group discussion, small-group work and student-led presentations.

Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith

Rhagolygon gyrfa

In 2015/16, 92% of the School’s graduates who were available for work reported they were in employment and/or further study within six months of graduating.

Economics is an intellectually stimulating discipline and the skills of Economics graduates are often in demand by employers in both the public and private sector. Some Economics graduates take a period of additional training after completing their degree, a postgraduate course perhaps or a further training course which will allow them to convert to another profession such as accountancy or law. Whatever career you pursue, the skills acquired during your Economics degree (problem solving ability, quantitative techniques, analytical skills etc), will undoubtedly be welcomed by employers.

In addition to the University Careers Service, we have invested in our own, dedicated Careers Centre to help students find internships, job opportunities and access business industry specific advice and guidance.

Lleoliadau

We recognise the importance of gaining work experience during your studies. Our dedicated Placements Manager offers advice on available work placements, internships, work experience and opportunities to enhance your CV and broaden your horizons. Support with job applications and interview techniques is also available from the Business School’s in-house Careers Consultant.

The placement is undertaken in the third year of a four-year degree programme. 

International Study

To give students the opportunity to gain a global perspective, we offer four-year degree programmes “with a Year Abroad”. You may apply during your second year for a place on these programmes and if you are successful you will transfer in to the four year degree scheme. The Year Abroad will become an integral part of the degree.

We have exchange agreements with high ranking Business Schools and universities worldwide where you will study modules taught and assessed in English. A list of partner institutions, all of which offer modules taught in English, can be found on our website.

Our Exchange team and the University Global Opportunity Centre work closely with students in preparation for and during their studies abroad.
