Faculty of Economics


The undergraduate course in Economics at Cambridge aims to give you a broad and solid understanding of economics. It allows you to study the core of economics in considerable depth, using mathematical and statistical techniques, while it also gives you a more comprehensive perspective on economics, incorporating historical, political and sociological insights.

This statement is to make clear the Faculty and University's position on the Mathematics requirements for admission to study for the BA Economics at Cambridge:
A-level Mathematics (or equivalent) is an essential requirement for studying Economic. A-level Further Mathematics is neither necessary nor essential for admission, although taking Further Mathematics at AS/A Level (or equivalent) can be very useful for the course.
