What I like about my economics degree at Nottingham
- You can choose the level of maths in your degree
Although I took A level maths, it's not one of my strongest subjects so I was very sceptical about doing Economics at university. However, you have a choice of following a less mathematical stream and still graduating with a BSc qualification.
- Module flexibility and choice
In your first year, out of the nine modules you are allowed to take four external modules and in your second and third year you are allowed to take two external modules. I took modules from Geography, Business and Engineering, which I really enjoyed. The school also allows you to take languages. There are many modules to choose from even within the School of Economics if you don't want to take anything external.
- Lot of help and feedback
The professors, tutors, and support staff are very helpful and friendly. They often go the extra mile to help you with your course and any other help you may need. When I ran for Students' Union President the school was very supportive. The School of Economics even had the highest voter turn out at this year's student leader election!
The School of Economics is very diverse. I have had the opportunity to make friends from all around the world.
- Study abroad
You have the option of studying in our campuses in Malaysia, China or partner universities. This is great for people who love to travel
Some of my plans as SU President
- Increase employability - Create an online buddy scheme to tap into the University's global alumni network to facilitate career-focused interactions between students and alumni.
- Wellbeing and welfare - Reform the personal tutoring system to make it more 'personal'. Give our tutors training to be able to deal with depression, mental health, disability and home sickness.
- Speakers' Union - Creating a platform for debate and discussion by inviting speakers from all over the world to speak at our university.
