【教育王國】讀Economics上游空間大 公私通吃

經濟學Economics當然跟錢有關,但又不只限於講錢。之不過要講留英讀Econ,何妨就由錢說起?根據The Times and Sunday Times 的 Good University Guide 2019,英國經濟系畢業生如果首份工不在專業範疇,起薪點有£18,000。但假如一畢業便投身專業人士行列,起薪點則有 £27,000,以初出茅蘆的大學畢業生來說,實在是相當不俗。

更重要的是,不論你覺得這起薪點是高是低,不容否定的是,有個經濟學學位在手,向上流動的空間實在非常很大,在職場上亦四通八達,數以百計的職位都會視Econ畢業生為搶手貨。


經濟學人才在公在私都非常吃得開。私營機構如銀行金融、投資、保險、傳媒、交通、慈善團體、零售業都需要他們,政府大部分公營部門、中央銀行、國庫及統計處,對具備Econ知識的人士亦是求才若渴。以職位而言,眾所周知銀行家以至 I Banker,不少都是從經濟學院走出來的。此外,經濟師、四師之一的會計師、商業分析員 及管理顧問,都是經濟學畢業生常見的出路。除此之外,精算師、政治政策顧問、數據分析員一類的職位,也是由不少Econ畢業生來擔任。

究竟甚麽令Economics畢業生這樣吃香?或者我們可以解構一下這個學科。經濟學不單是神科,還是個大科,其涵蓋面非常廣泛。學科主要研究的,是資源稀缺下人們所作的取捨抉擇,透過宏觀及微觀的不同視角,觀察、研究、分析社會市場的整體互動運作。因此,同學修讀經濟學時,除了是要鑽研經濟學理論,還會在學習過程中更深入了解政治、法律、財經、地理、歷史、全球化的等等議題。此科的核心科目一般包括計量經濟學(Econometrics)、法律學 (Legal studies)、經濟政策 (Economic policy)、環球金融(Global finance)、經濟歷史 (Economic history)及國際商貿(International trade)等。

在英國,經濟學本科學位一般需時三年完成。大部份名大學提供的經濟學學位是理學士(BSc),課程往往非常側重數學和統計分析、理論與技巧,屬高度技術性。另外,亦有些經濟學學位是文學士(BA),這些課程除了經濟學核心範圍,一般還會向社會學、心理學及其他社會科學科延伸。對經濟學有興趣的同學,實在可以因應自己的興趣和強項來進一步選擇學位種類。

上一篇文章我講過,Economics和Business的一大分別,是前者收生要求相對高很多。要入經濟學系,A Level 要求雖說由BCC至AAB不等,但AAA已是尋常,不少頂尖的經濟學院甚至要求A*成績。不可不提,經濟系特別重視數學科成績,名校尤其如此。同學不管目標是要取文學士或理學士學位,報名時大都需要有A以上的數學成績,才會有叩門資格。

A Level 以外,同學如果擁有的是 International Baccalaureate資歷,一般要有36分才獲考慮。假如學科要求報考生有IELTS,典型的收生要求都要有6.5總分,而且所有卷的得分都不能低過6 .0才行。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
