Economics at Cambridge is divided into Part I (first year) and Part II (second and third years). Part II is highly mathematical but Part I is self-contained and can make a good preparation for other subjects such as Law, Sociology and Social Anthropology (under HSPS), Philosophy or Theology. A transfer to Management Studies is possible for the third or a fourth year of study. All transfers depend on performance and the availability of spaces.

Subject Requirements

Essential: Mathematics

Highly Desirable: Further Mathematics (including Statistics rather than Mechanics modules), History and Geography.
