We have an active economics program at Oxford and LMH. Within the college, we have between 10-12 undergraduates in each year studying economics. Visiting Students studying Economics are fully integrated into our undergraduate program.
Our Economics programme for Visiting Students is demanding and will expose students to approaches to the study of Economics that they are unlikely to have encountered before. Most courses are taught through a combination of lectures and tutorials in small groups. Some of the more technical courses are taught through small-group classes instead of tutorials. Students carry out a substantial amount of self-guided study every week to prepare an essay or problem set for each tutorial or class.
Transfer of Credit
It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that credit may be transferred to their home institution. We can provide course synopses on request to facilitate this. We cannot, however, make changes to course content.
Please read the Economics course information sheet carefully before choosing your tutorial topics. This contains essential information about course prerequisites and the course structure. You can also view a summary of the Economics courses, which shows the terms in which the courses are available and the relevant Economics exercise questions you would be required to submit in order to apply for these courses.
Economics Open-Book Exercise
All applicants for our Economics programme for Visiting Students must complete and submit the Economics Open-Book Exercise. Please carefully follow the instructions about which questions to attempt, which will depend on the courses you wish to take.
