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 the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) in early November at an authorised local centre before your interview, most likely your school or college. See the University undergraduate Land Economy pages.


In light of Covid we are currently reviewing whether we shall be holding virtual or College-based interviews and will provide further details in the future.

In order to minimise COVID-related risks to our applicants, students and staff, all 2020 interviews were held online. A typical virtual interview for Land Economy usually consists of one 45 minute online interview with the Director of Studies for Land Economy and subject Fellows. The interview aims to assess your intellectual ability, enthusiasm, and commitment to the subject. However, this format may change depending on government guidelines for 2021.

There is the possibility that interviews this year could take place in College or virtually once more. We will provide further details as soon as we are able.

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.
