About the Department
The Department of Economics at Leicester has a long history. Since its inauguration in 1924, the Department has been increasingly successful. In the 2008 RAE all of our submissions were recognised to be internationally significant, with the panel noting that of our research 'an impressive proportion (is) world leading'.
In the past three-year average, we have been regularly ranked among the top three economics departments in the UK for overall student satisfaction among mainstream traditional pre-1992 universities. We consistently perform highly in the NSS survey, with 88% of our students reporting that they were overall satisfied with their course in the most recent survey (2013).
Our modern structure consists of over 30 academic staff working in the department, including 8 professors, and over 50 research students. We offer 8 undergraduate programmes, two pre-masters diplomas and 5 taught postgraduate courses making the Department of Economics at the University of Leicester one of the largest in the country.
