At Cambridge

The Department of Land Economy is a leading international centre, providing a full programme of taught courses within an intensive, research-oriented environment. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessment, 50% of the Department's research work was described as "world leading" and a further 38% as "internationally excellent".

The undergraduate degree in Land Economy offers you the opportunity to build valuable skill sets, study some of the key issues of our time, and cultivate excellent career opportunities. If you are looking for a degree that will give you an intellectual challenge and a wide breadth of career opportunities, this is it.

Law, economics and their relationship to the built and natural environment are at the heart of this course. In addition to these core areas, the issues studied on the degree have real-world applications and international scope.

How To Apply

Entry requirements are A Level: A*AA and IB: 40-42 points, with 776 at Higher Level, and a wide variety of other equivalent qualifications from around the world.

Land Economy has no essential subject requirements but Economics, Mathematics, or Geography would be useful to a Land Economist.

All applicants for Land Economy are required to take the pre-interview written assessment for Land Economy at an authorised centre local to them (for a lot of applicants, this will be their school or college). This will be the Thinking Skills Assessment (Critical Thinking and Problem Solving; 90 minutes) or TSA.

You must be registered in advance (separately from your UCAS application) to take the assessment, the registration deadline is 15 October. Your assessment centre must register you for the pre-interview assessment; you’re not able to register yourself. See the pre-interview written assessments page for information about assessment centres, registration deadline and date of the assessment. Please check the Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing website for scheduled start times. Please note that your performance in the pre-interview assessment will not be considered in isolation, but will be taken into account alongside the other elements of your application.


There is no single career track for students studying Land Economy. This course is perfect for those who value the opportunity to sample an array of subjects, to specialise, or to combine interests in new and fascinating ways. Our graduates go on to be lawyers, economists, and civil servants, or to work for international or national agencies. Many go into financial, business or management careers, and others enter public service or continue into further education.
