For prospective students
We advise you to read the Economics page thoroughly. For reading and preparation advice (including sample mathematical and analytical questions from the Director of Studies in Economics), you will find the following sections particularly useful:
- Applying to study Economics
- What are we looking for?
- Reading, resources and events
- Student perspectives
For offer holders
For reading before you start the course, the best text to read in preparation for studying Economics is D. Begg, R. Dornbusch and S. Fischer, Economics, McGraw Hill.
If you studied in a different qualification system and would like to consult an A level Mathematics textbook, we suggest L. Bostock and S. Chandler. 2013. Core Maths for Advanced Level. 3rd edition. Cheltenham: Nelson Thornes.
