This is an opportunity to develop into a leader in educational innovation in economics at one of the leading Schools of Economics worldwide: we rank 36th worldwide, 10th in Europe and 5th in the UK (IDEAS RePEc).

Our priorities include student access and participation, improving areas in NSS where results are challenging, developing programme level curriculum and new assessment methods, ensuring the welfare needs of our students are met, and building partnerships with students and staff to enhance student experience.
