Trosolwg y cwrs

From Brexit and the Bedroom Tax to wages and wealth, environment and energy to health and homelessness, economists have rarely held such influence in the direction and debate of issues affecting the communities of the world.

It’s no wonder then, that employers are offering high wage graduate careers across the public sector, business, banking, accountancy and consultancy for those with economic expertise.

Our BScEcon Economics seeks to discover a new generation of economic thinkers.

Our research-led faculty will encourage you to consider the social, economic and ethical implications of your decisions on modules in labour economics, development, ethics and morality.

Your Professional Placement Year is an opportunity to put your university knowhow into practice as you take up a paid role and complement your academic study with exposure to real-world business scenarios.

Blwyddyn tri: Blwyddyn Ryngosod

Year three is spent on a Professional Placement. This can be a very valuable part of your programme as there are many benefits that you can gain from it:

  • you can access support throughout the application and recruitment process through tailored workshops and one-to-one advice.
  • you will be supported whilst on placement. Most students settle into their placements very quickly but we are on hand to help and to advise if you need us.
  • your academic performance should improve - students who complete a placement year generally demonstrate an improved performance in their final year.
  • you will gain an insight into an organisation and industry without any long-term obligations - this will help you with future career planning.
  • you may be able to enter an organisation at a higher level on completion of your studies
  • you will have the chance to earn whilst you study.
  • you will develop new skills and add to your CV.

It should be noted that acceptance onto this programme does not guarantee you a placement. Ultimate responsibility for securing a placement opportunity lies with the student, although our Careers and Employability team can assist you in sourcing something suitable, and in preparing you for the application and recruitment process.

We strongly advise that you start the process of finding a placement sooner rather than later. The recruitment process of many graduate employers opens around 12 months before the placements actually begin. There are often numerous stages to go through, including psychometric testing and assessment centres, and the whole process can take up to four months (sometimes longer) from beginning to end; it is really important that you start your search early.

We strongly encourage all students to source and secure paid work placements. However, we will consider unpaid placements providing it is evident that the experience allows you to meet the learning outcomes of the programme, and that you are fully aware of any financial implications.

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.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor at the beginning of your studies. Normally, your personal tutor will teach on your own degree course and you will keep the same personal tutor throughout your course.

Your personal tutor will be able to give you advice on academic issues, including module choice and assessment. If you encounter any problems which affect your studies, your personal tutor should always be your first point of contact; she/he will be able to put you in touch with the wide range of expert student support services provided by the University and the Students' Union as appropriate. It is normally your personal tutor who writes references for job applications and therefore you should keep your personal tutor informed about how you are getting on. You are required to meet with your personal tutor three points during each academic year but you are also encouraged to get in touch with them at any other point if you need help or advice.

For day-to-day information, the staff of our Undergraduate Student Hub are available, in person, by telephone or by email, from 8am to 6pm each weekday during term time to answer your questions.

You will have access through the Learning Central website to relevant multimedia material, presentations, lecture handouts, bibliographies, further links, electronic exercises and discussion circles.

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, and excellent libraries and resource centres.

Feedback

We’ll provide you with regular feedback on your work. This comes in a variety of formats including oral feedback, personalised feedback on written work, and generic written feedback.

You will be given general feedback in relation to examinations following the May/June examination period and you will be able to discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor. 

Sut caf fy asesu?

Assessment methods vary from module to module but, across your degree scheme as a whole, you can expect a mixture of exams, coursework, essays, practical work, presentations, and individual and group projects.

Pa sgiliau bydda i’n eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

As a result of engaging fully with this course, you will acquire and develop a range of valuable skills, both those which are discipline specific and more generic ‘employability skills’. These will allow you to:

  • grasp complex issues with confidence
  • ask the right questions of complex texts
  • have an imaginative appreciation of different views and options and analyse these critically
  • identify and apply relevant data
  • develop practical research skills
  • propose imaginative solutions of your own that are rooted in evidence
  • communicate clearly, concisely and persuasively in writing and speech
  • sourcing, interpreting and presenting relevant numerical information – to support the composition of projects reports and business cases
  • work to deadlines and priorities, managing a range of tasks at the same time
  • learn from constructive criticism and incorporate its insights
  • work as part of a team, developing a collaborative approach to problem-solving
  • use IT programmes and digital media, where appropriate
  • take responsibility for your own learning programme and professional development

Gwybodaeth arall

Our Trading Room is used as part of some economics and accounting courses but is open to all Business School students. This facility is supervised by trained PhD students who will help you become familiar with the software and modelling techniques used in real-life trading rooms.

 

Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith

Rhagolygon gyrfa

Our business degrees give students a broad range of skills which are valued by a range of employers in the private and public sectors. 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.

In addition to the central University Careers Service, our students benefit from a dedicated on-site Careers and Placements service to help them find internships, job opportunities and to access business-industry specific advice, training and guidance.

Lleoliadau

Students are responsible for finding their own placements, though support will be given by the School’s employability team. Students unable to secure a suitable placement will be permitted to transfer to the equivalent ‘non-placement’ programme, assuming the relevant academic requirements are met. Placements can be conducted in English or in Welsh.
