Applicants are encouraged to avoid combinations of subjects with significantly overlapping curricula, such as Economics and Business Studies.

BTEC

We welcome applications from students taking BTECs alongside two A levels, including A level Mathematics for BSc Economics and BSc Economics and Industrial Organisation. For BA/BSc Economics, Politics and International Studies you will need A*/Grade 8 in GCSE Mathematics.

Contextual Offers

Warwick may make differential offers to students in a number of circumstances. These include students participating in the Realising Opportunities programme, or who meet two of the contextual data criteria. Differential offers will be made for our programmes to AAA.

Find out more about contextual data offers for Economics.

International Students

We welcome applications from students with other internationally recognised qualifications.

Warwick International Foundation Programme (IFP)

All students who successfully complete the Warwick IFP and apply to Warwick through UCAS will receive a guaranteed conditional offer for a related undergraduate programme (selected courses only).

Find out more about standard offers and conditions for the IFP.


English Language Requirements

All students will also need to meet our English Language requirements.


Gap Years

Applications for deferred entry welcomed.

Retakes

In a normal year, due to the competitive nature of our courses, unfortunately, retaking modules during an additional year i.e. spending 3 years on achieving A2s does place applicants at a disadvantage. This is because they will be competing against students who are only taking two years to complete their A Levels. If this is due to mitigating circumstances you will need to ensure that your referee explains why, and you can also complete the Access to Warwick Degrees (AWARDS) form.


Internal Transfers (Inside the Department of Economics)

We offer flexibility to our students to transfer between the three undergraduate programmes we offer in the Department of Economics which are:

  • BSc Economics
  • BSc Economics and Industrial Organisation
  • BSc/BA Economics, Politics and International Studies

A transfer is usually straight forward apart from if you are requesting a transfer from BSc/BA Economics, Politics and International Studies to our other two programmes. For this transfer to be approved, we would need to check you have met the Maths requirements for BSc Economics or BSc Economics and Industrial Organisation (A) and that you haven't previously made an unsuccessful application to these two courses.

A transfer cannot be requested until you enrol with the University. Once enrolled, you should contact the Undergraduate Office to request a transfer of degree.

External Transfers (Outside the Department of Economics)

Transfers into the Department of Economics are not guaranteed and are reliant on our student intake at the beginning of the year. It is recommended that you contact the Undergraduate Office at the start of the year to see if the Department is open to transfers.

If you are a student in the Department of Economics thinking of transferring to a degree course outside of the Department of Economics, you will need to contact the Department in question to request this.

Transfers from other Universities

Unfortunately we are unable to accept any transfers from other Universities into any year of our degree course.
