A message from the Deputy Head of Department (Teaching and Learning)

"We are delighted that you are considering studying economics at Warwick. You can use this webpage to view resources and readings that have been recommended by our academic faculty for anyone who may be considering studying economics at postgraduate level. You can choose to engage with these resources in preparation for your arrival as a new student in the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick.

Please note that you are not required to engage with these resources. However, these are recommendations just in case you are interested in doing some preparation before you arrive and we encourage you to explore your interests widely and with enthusiasm in whatever way you see fit.

If you obtain an offer to study with us, we will tell you what you are required to read prior to your arrival, but for now, just read and engage with the things that make you feel as passionate and excited about economics, as we do."

Associate Professor Claudia Rei
