A Level

Course Overview

So, what is economics all about? And more importantly what can you do with it?

We’re often told money makes the world go around. It plays a big part in politics, society, law, geography, and almost everything else in life. But economics is so much more finance. It is a fascinating study of choices, of why people make the decisions they make, and how resources are spread out around the world. Economics investigates how individuals, businesses and governments use their wealth and the impacts of their decisions on things such as unemployment, inflation, and monetary challenges of cities, countries, and continents.
Studying Economics will allow you to go into careers such as banking, accounting, consultancy and many, many more…
