The BSc Financial Economics with Foundation Year will provide students with a core set of technically demanding, yet applications-oriented, skills in financial economics and an extensive knowledge of the financial sector. Students will acquire the knowledge and skills needed for working in professions requiring economic and financial literacy. Students will also gain hands-on experience in academic research and data analysis, as a practical project is an integral part of the degree. This is a rigorous course that combines an open admissions policy with high standards. The course is fairly demanding in terms of its use of quantitative techniques. For those who have not studied maths for some time, Birkbeck offers an intensive two-week evening preliminary or refresher course prior to the start of the degree. The course features two pathways, which allow students to focus either on the technical or the applied aspects of financial economics. Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, students will automatically progress onto the three-year, full-time evening study BSc Financial Economics or onto one of the other Economics programmes: BSc Economics, BSc Economics and Social Policy, BSc Economics and Business, or BSc Finance with Accounting. Applicant needs only complete one application and enrols onto one programme.
