The BA in Land Economy focuses on the use, management and development of the built and natural environment, and offers a solid grounding in both economics and law. The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, but graduates go on to pursue a wide range of careers and Land Economy has one of the strongest records for post-BA employment in the University.
The first year of the course comprises teaching students the core disciplines of law and economics, and introduces students to the multidisciplinary nature of the degree. Students take four papers in their first year.
In second year, students have the chance to develop their skills and choose from a range of subjects. Students choose five papers to complete over the year.
In final year, four papers are chosen that allow students to specialise even further. In addition, students also write a 10,000 word dissertation on a topic of their choice.

Interviews allow us to distinguish amongst excellent applicants by assessing the skills and aptitudes essential for successful study in higher education, and your academic qualities – essentially, how do you think?
For 2024 entry, interviews for all applicants to Lucy Cavendish will take place virtually. The aims and content will still be the same as in-person interviews. You can read more about Lucy Cavendish's online interviews here and you can read the University's information on interviews here.
Each candidate typically has two interviews, lasting between twenty and thirty minutes. In some cases, you will be given preparatory material beforehand.
In a few subjects, you will be interviewed by more than one College or in the Faculty. You will be notified of this in your interview invitation.
