Social Event

From the Global Financial Crisis, through the on-going Brexit negotiations, and on into US trade policy, economic events from recent years continue to create a great deal of uncertainty about the future shape of the UK, EU and global economies.

It does, however, make this an extremely exciting time to study economics at a diverse, outward looking university such as UEA, where you will soon be taught by economists from the UK, the EU and the rest of the world. You have made a good choice.

We also understand that you have a lot to think about in the coming weeks and hopefully these few paragraphs can provide a bit of reassurance about what you do (and don’t) need to do before you come to UEA in order to prepare yourself to study economics.

Firstly, and importantly, all we really need is for you to bring yourself, enthused about studying at university, and studying economics. Everything you need to know will be covered over the course of your degree.

The School does not expect you to have done any preparatory reading prior to the start of the semester, however you may find it useful to watch this MOOC as preparation for making the transition from school to university life: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/preparing-for-uni

However you may well want to start preparing. Since the Global Financial crisis, and even more so since the Brexit vote, economics is headline news. Start to pay a bit of attention to what is going on – perhaps BBC News, and if you want a bit more try an edition or two of The Economist (which you will have free digital access to as a UEA student in a few weeks anyway). This can help to enrich your degree by forming questions that your study with us will help answer.

On a more practical note we are aware that you might want to use the coming weeks to think about textbooks. The main thing to stress is there is plenty of time to source books when you get here. Typically some part of your first lecture on any of your modules will provide information about recommended reading, there is a Waterstone’s Bookshop on campus, and there is no need to have books before your first lectures.

You may want to have a look at the Norwich Economic Papers, a journal for students in the School of Economics. It provides an opportunity for ECO students to engage in, and publish, scholarly work in economics.
