Learning economics can help you answer the most interesting and seemingly unrelated questions, such as: should you go to university or look for a job? Should you buy a burger or fish and chips? The Economics Summer School is aimed at giving you a taste of first year undergraduate economics and introduce you to way in which economists think and therefore answers questions ranging from climate change and Brexit, to which way a goalkeeper should go in a penalty shootout and whether universities should charge fees. You will also have the chance to work in groups and answer an economic question of your interest and in the process, learn about free online resources which will help you in other subjects like Maths, History and Geography as well.
