Economics and politics

placeholder

Short courses for the public

Arguably, there is little in our lives that Economics and Politics doesn't touch. These days, the study of both is probably more exciting and more useful than ever.

Economics studies the production, consumption, and transfer of wealth – how consumers, firms and governments determine how resources are allocated. The study of Politics is the study of governance and debate, and provides an understanding of the impact of political institutions on modern societies. 

Studying Economics and Politics helps make sense of governmental policy-making, the conduct of businesses and the enormous economic transformations happening throughout the world.

Many of our courses can be studied for credit which means they can count towards a recognised qualification, such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.
