Economic Studies

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.

Economics and administration is a hybrid field in which professionals are trained in both macro and micro economics. Analysis of history and understanding economic principles, along with knowledge of finance, public policy and business topics arm experts in making short and long term recommendations.
