Our January start option allows you to achieve our quality Honours degree in 3.5 years (42 months) of study. We are excited to offer this option as an alternative to the United Kingdom tradition of starting degrees in September.
Starting in January allows you to prepare fully for travels to Dundee and removes the time pressure of arranging visas, travel, and finances as well as English language requirements before starting in Dundee. Of course, you may also want to start in January so that you can have a short break before returning to study which can be used to travel and or catch up with family and friends. Starting in January also has a financial benefit. You pay lower fees in your first year and you enter the job market after only three and a half years.
In your first year, you will take four modules, which you will study until the end of May. As part of the four, there will be a core module that you will study. In year 2, you will study eight modules over the year so as to meet the normal requirements to proceed into third year. In all years you will take a mixture of core and optional modules. For more details see Teaching and Assessment.
Economists examine how societies attempt to make the best use of their scarce resources, so that they can advise governments, individuals, and companies on how to improve decisions and outcomes.
Traditionally economists advise on investment, inflation, interest rates, and production. Increasingly however, economics takes a wider focus with many economists examining climate change, inequality, and improving healthcare.
