Abstract

The United Kingdom has long been famous for it’s economic education. It has given the world many famous economists from Adam Smith, David Ricardo and Karl Marx to Alfred Marshall, John Keynes and Amartya Sen. Interest in economics degrees has been always high, sustained by the incentive of a good salary after graduation. This has been confirmed by the latest IFS study (1), which shows that economists, together with doctors, are the highest graduate earners in the country. This paper will look at the areas of economics education in the UK that has shaped the field in the last 15 years and discuss what can be expected in the future. It will include support from economics lecturers at the national level, including members of “Economics Network” and lecturers’ professional accreditation through Higher Education Academy, curriculum debates and “CORE”, and the Teaching Excellency Framework.
