Course description

* In Economics, you will look at the fundamental forces which affect our lives, such as employment, prices, international trade, poverty and how people behave and interact with each other, including consumers, manufacturers and the government.

* The relationship between each of the forces ensures lively and interesting debate. Studying Economics allows you the opportunity to make your own judgements and form your own opinions.

* At AS Level, you will study two units covering Markets and Market Failure and the National Economy. Candidates going on to take the full Advanced GCE qualification take a further two units including Business Economics and the Distribution of Income and the National and International Economy.

* Students have the opportunity to visit a European city to analyse economic theory in an international setting Economics is a very transferable, useful and interesting A level. What potential employers want most is someone with motivation, intelligence, and proven ability to work. Getting an Economics A level shows that you have all of these qualities.
