Our quantitative approach provides a solid foundation in the relevant social sciences, preparing graduates for success in the ever-evolving world of economics and management.

As with all BSc Programmes designed by the LSE (London School of Economics), students take four year-long courses per annum (or three year-long courses and two half-courses lasting one term only), made up of a combination of compulsory, chosen, and optional classes.

NB: availability of courses depends on student interest, and not all of the above courses may be available for study during year 3. Some courses carry pre-requisites – please refer to the UoL course list for additional information.

Before graduating from Forward College, we recommend students pursue an internship, whether for career exploration purposes or to gain practical, valuable, and much sought-after experience. For bachelor’s students, an internship is not mandatory, but is highly recommended.

An internship during college prepares you for the world of work and its challenges.
