Economics


UCL Economics has an outstanding international reputation in the areas of game theory, industrial organisation, econometrics, applied microeconomics, development economics and the economics of migration.

The department is a global leader in policy-oriented research, with members directing and holding senior positions in research centres involved in policy design and evaluation.

We are sufficiently large to be a lively centre for wide-ranging research activity but compact enough for staff to be highly accessible to students.

Student View

"I was attracted to UCL by its unrivalled reputation as a world-leading academic institution. I was also particularly keen on becoming familiar with a very rigorous, technically demanding approach to the discipline and was sure UCL was the right place to find this."

Matteo Scattola

Degree: Economic Policy MSc

Student View

"The ability to see works of art in situ, both in London galleries and department-subsidised trips to Europe, proved the department's commitment to the analysis of the physical art object and an understanding of the criticality of the work's context."

James Baskerville

Subject: History of Art, Faculty: Social and Historical Sciences
