To get physically fit for the entrance tests and also for the demanding physical nature of the job. Also I would tell people to enjoy themselves before they join as it’s a job for at least 30 years.

I would also informl people about the variety of avenues people can get into when they have completed their training. There really is a career for every person regardless of where their interests lie. There is so many specialised units and prospects.

Economics is a social science which studies the distribution of resources in society, in the form of goods, services, and labour. It covers topics such as how goods are priced, how banks function, and how consumers behave in different markets.

In the first two years, students are introduced to macro and microeconomics, calculus, and statistics. The final two years concentrate on the development of skills in statistical analysis. The programme is designed for students who are strong in maths and who wish to use their capabilities in the economic and commercial environment.
