Course Details

Law, economics, and their relationship to the built and natural environments are central to the Cambridge Land Economy course, along with other areas such as business regulation, the financial aspects of real estate and international development. The multidisciplinary nature of the Land Economy course is particularly relevant in the 21st century where the environment, law and economics and the control of scarce resources affect the daily lives of people around the world.

Information about the course structure, departmental teaching arrangements, offered topics and options can be found on the University of Cambridge website: Land Economy Course Outline

Land Economy at Queens'

Studying Land Economy has encouraged me to take a balanced, logical approach to economic, legal, social and environmental problems. Studying at Queens' is great, because it is close to the department and library. In addition, having a Director of Studies as supportive as Professor Dixon is very helpful.


Supervisions in groups of two, three or four take place weekly in College or in other Colleges, with subject specialists.
