UCL Department of Economics


Registration information for Students outside Economics

Current students outside the department who are non-economists can take the following options:

ECON0008: History of Economic Thought (Term 1)

ECON0011: Basic Economic Concepts (Term 2)

ECON0044: An Introduction to Applied Economics Analysis (Term 1)

ECON0045: Money and Banking (Term 2)

To register for a course log on to PORTICO and select the optional module you wish to take. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis by date in PORTICO.

As spaces on some modules are quite limited, registration is not guaranteed. If successful you will receive notification via PORTICO so you should check your account regularly.  N.B. This is likely to be towards the end of Registration Week. 

The first three modules have no pre-requisites but students should note that for ECON0011 some mathematics is involved so a pass at A level (or equivalent) is advantageous.

For any Economics module you select you will be allocated a compulsory tutorial class which you will be able to view via your online personal timetable.

If you need any academic assistance or are unsure whether you meet the requirements then you should see Dr Frank Witte in Room G25 (Drayton House). Open office hours from 9.30-10.30 Tue and Thu.

Affiliates from other departments should see Professor Eric French in Room 201 (Drayton House).
