Information for New Students

Welcome to the students' part of this website. This is primarily intended for new students in the Department of Economics, to provide a clear mechanism by which we can supply useful information and communicate the important things that you need to do to successfully register in the Department!  You will receive information from us via email, including the details of the appointment you will have with your Personal Tutor.  Further information can be found in the Departmental Undergraduate Handbook - sections 3 and 4.  (N.B. some other sections are currently in the process of being updated for 2016/17).  If you have not received this information by Monday 12th September then please contact the Undergraduate Team

Recommended reading will be made known to you by your lecturer, and the details provided on their corresponding Moodle page (Moodle is UCL's online learning space, used by module organisers, programme leaders, departments and faculties to provide essential information in addition to learning resources), which you will have access to in due course.  We normally advise students to wait till they get here with regard to purchasing textbooks so you can take up to date advice from the relevant lecturers, and possibly obtain discounted second-hand books from continuing students.  The only textbook that might be sensible to purchase in advance is: Pemberton & Rau's Mathematics for Economists: An Introductory Textbook, Fourth Edition, Manchester University Press, 2016; as you will certainly need this one.
