Land Economy

  • Number of students per year: up to three
  • Typical offer: A*AA or equivalent
  • Essential subjects: none
  • Useful subjects: Mathematics

Land Economy offers students the opportunity to build valuable skill sets, study some of the key issues of our time, and cultivate excellent career opportunities.

If you're looking for a degree that will give you an intellectual challenge and a wide breadth of career opportunities, this is it. 

The main disciplines are law and economics, but with options in aspects of the environment, business finance, and resource management. 

Find out more on the University webpage.


Our typical conditional offer is one A* and two A grades at A-Level or equivalent.

Previous Land Economy students have taken a wide range of subjects at A-Level, from sciences, mathematics, arts, and social sciences. There are no required subjects at A-Level, but Mathematics is useful. If you haven't studied Mathematics at A-Level or equivalent, we'll need to know that you have the mathematical skills to thrive on the course.

We welcome applications from students with other qualifications comparable to A2 Level, such as the Scottish Advanced Highers, the International Baccalaureate, and other school leaving examinations.

Written assessment

You'll need to complete an assessment at an authorised local centre before your interview, most likely your school or college. See the University undergraduate Land Economy pages.


You'll have two academic interviews lasting around 30 minutes each. One will be with the Director of Studies in Land Economy, and the other will be with another academic in the subject. You'll be given a pair of short texts, such as pieces of academic writing or newspaper articles, to read before the interviews.

Written work

You don't need to submit any written work.

Deferred and post A-Level entry

We're happy to consider post A-Level and deferred applications in Land Economy. You'll normally have already achieved A*AA at A-Level or equivalent, and you'll need to go through the normal competitive process with the other applicants.
