Module description

EC123 is a compulsory module for all students in economics. It is different from other Economics modules in the sense that there is no exam and it runs over the whole of the three years of undergraduate studies. Upon the completion of the module students will have developed an understanding of the working world and skills necessary to successfully compete in the graduate labour market after graduation.

The module is assessed on a Pass/Fail basis and it is 100% coursework. There are required assignments due at the end of each academic year, though, the final mark for the module will be based on the reflective 1500-2000 word essay turned in at the end of the third year. The final essay will need to discuss the set of employability skills acquired by doing each of the required assignments and how those assignments factored (or will factor) into the student's job search. Attendance at lectures is mandatory.

All the resources for this module will be available in Moodle and you can contact the Employability and Careers Centre for further support.

Exceptionally it can be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements, industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules. The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
