Assessment is part of the learning process and makes use of case studies.

You will then choose from a range of optional courses within the Department and the School so that you can deepen or widen your expertise, and take up the advanced study of particular aspects of economic life. Over the summer period, you will complete a dissertation based on empirical research.
