Read what some of our students and recent graduates have to say about studying Economics at Royal Holloway.

The environment here is great; staff from the Department are very supportive and welcoming, Professors are always available to clarify doubts and they are very passionate about their subjects.           

Giulia Reynard, BSc Economics


Economics is a good foundation from which you can continue your studies. Lectureres give you a snapshot of each of their areas of specialism; studying Family Economics in seconnd year prompted me to write my third year disseration in that area.                  

Ying Zhou, BSc Economics


The best thing about the experience were the skills I picked up while studying. Things I wouldn't even have thought of, such as time management and group work. From the start of my degree I was given to opportunity to go to skills workshops and career talks which helped me to visualise my future and think of what will happen after university.  

Anab Khokhar, BSc Economics and Managment


3 years at RHUL studying Economics have flown by, these years have consisted of some great teachers and mentors as well as lasting friendships. The stage has been set for the next adventure.                                      

Ashpreet Sran, BSc Economics


“My first year at RH has been unforgettable, the economics lecturers are so down to earth and so fun especially Dr Hamermesh who is so enthusiastic,  I have no idea what I want to do in the future but I'm sure with a BSc Economics and Mathematics degree, a lot of doors will open. Tips for incoming students would be to not let work pile up on top of you and if you need help ask for it because you'll be surprised with the support RH offers!”                                         

Hadjer Boum BSc Economics and Mathematics


The economics department has made the past four years a delight. What has made my time here so special is the people within the department and I have made friendships which will last a lifetime. All the staff both academic and in the office have been very supportive and willing to go the extra mile to assist students.
