There are a range of options for students to consider for a career in economics. These include economist roles, teacher/lecturer, accountant, statistician and finance. Students may consider direct entry into employment or further training.
This course is excellent preparation for students planning to continue on to university to study subjects including economics, accounting, banking and finance, business and management. Economics also provides a strong grounding for those wishing to pursue many other subject areas at degree level and is a core subject in the exams set by most professional bodies.
I came to The Henley College from The Amersham School. I decided to study Economics because it is a gateway to understanding the way in which small or large scale businesses operate. Economics will also be an important addition to my CV for when I apply to university or seek employment. I enjoy learning about the macro elements of economics. Understanding economic theory around this is truly intriguing as such knowledge is not just applicable in class but also in everyday life, letting you understand and form opinions about issues on either a national or global level.
I hope this course, entwined with Ancient History, Mathematics, Philosophy and the Extended Project will help me in applying to a Russell Group University as economics does seem to exaggerate your academic potential.
