Main page content

The Economics undergraduate course at Cambridge offers students the opportunity to study economics both at a theoretical and an applied level. Cambridge equips the students with a toolkit they can use to explore real world problems. Students learn the formal economic analysis, the policy prescriptions that follow as well as the political and economic context in which these policies are implemented. More details about the course can be found on the University website.

Economics at Murray Edwards College

We admit between four and six students a year studying Economics at Murray Edwards, meaning that there are around a dozen undergraduates. Together with another dozen of graduates, they make for a strong, friendly and vibrant community. There is an annual subject dinner designed to welcome all the new economists to the College and to introduce them to existing students, bringing together Economics undergraduates, postgraduates and Fellows of the College.
