      Accomodation

      Highly wouldn't recommend, staff are not polite and definitely not professional. Was last resort, area is not very safe, no security as advertised on the site. Overall very very bad.

      Course

      Economics is made up of 4 modules per year. One consists of maths, another of pure economics (macro- and microeconomics) and the last two will relate to a broader area of economics such as political, international trade, marketing etc. In your first year, UEL like to have their students learn a board range of subjects rather than Economics alone. But in your 2nd and 3rd year you can focus in economics specifically as they allow you to have options. Those that are 30 credit modules require you to do 2000-2500 words coursework and one exam while 15 credit modules require you to either do 1500 word coursework with one exam OR 3000 word coursework alone OR 1500 word coursework with one presentation. All the assignments are at a good level of difficulty, not too easy but challenging enough for your brain to stimulate. As long as you keep up with the reading and revise week to week, it is relatively easy to get a 1st over all. The teaching staff is varied but overall most of them are very helpful and approachable. If you send them a draft copy of you report coursework, they are likely to offer you helpful feedback in order for you to improve upon your work.

      I didn't have a process. I just thought, 'hmm.. I don't need to worry about where to live as I will be living with parents'.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
