Undergraduate Study - Visiting Students

The department has a well-established tradition of receiving visiting students who wish to study Economics. Economic modules usually run for a full year but it is possible to sit some modules on a one or two-term-only basis. The final choice of modules is best made on arrival at the University so that the selection can be related to the background and experience of the student. The following key is provided for the list below:

A = Taking the module for the Autumn term only is possible
S = Taking the module for the Spring & Summer terms only is possible.
A/S = Taking the module for the Autumn and Spring terms only is possible.

The list below is indicative and is not exhaustive. A full list of current Economics modules may be obtained by visiting the undergraduate module webpages, found here. Enquiries about the possibility of taking modules on a part-year basis may be addressed to the Department’s Quality Assurance Manager, Kelly Taylor, on: Kelly.Taylor@warwick.ac.uk or the Undergraduate Co-ordinator, Mrs Ann Simper on: A.Simper@warwick.ac.uk.
