About BSc Economics and Econometrics with Study Abroad

This course combines the study of economics and econometrics with a wide range of optional units. It also gives you the opportunity to extend your degree and spend your third year experiencing different styles of education, customs and traditions while studying economics and econometrics in English at one of our partner institutions overseas.

Econometrics is the branch of statistics that economists use to verify or disprove theories and analyse the impacts of policies and events on the health of the economy. It has been developed because, unlike physical sciences where controlled experiments are used to determine the effect of one thing on another, it is impossible to hold the economy constant while tinkering with a single variable. Econometrics provides the scientific means to overcome this issue using empirical observations.

Econometrics will require you to use applied mathematical and statistical skills to analyse economic data. If you are interested in economics and want to have a good understanding of how economists test economic theories, as well as how that may inform the development of policy, then econometrics may be the subject for you.

Your first and second years are the same as for BSc Economics and Econometrics. You will then spend your third year studying modules in economics and econometrics abroad, before returning to Bristol for your final year. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad.

While abroad, students have previously taken units such as:

 

  • Business Negotiations at Yonsei in South Korea;
  • Economic Issues in a Developing World at National University of Singapore;
  • International Financial Institutions and Markets at the University of Adelaide;
  • Sports Economics at Copenhagen Business School.
