Economics at 鶹

We admit 4-6 Economics students a year, so there are around a dozen undergraduates in the College at any one time. The subject community is strong, friendly and vibrant. 鶹 students are largely supervised by our own Economics Fellows, but teaching is also arranged with other Colleges, so that students are always taught by an expert. The College has a well-stocked library, which contains the books needed for the Economics course and is accessible 24/7.
