Study Economics with Oxford Summer Courses

Economics Summer School
Economics involves the study of how markets work, both at an international level (macroeconomics) and how businesses succeed and fail with a domestic economy (microeconomics). Our tutors always relate their teaching back to current events and this keeps the study of Economics stimulating and relevant. Justifying policy decisions in a tutorial environment will teach students the importance of making strong arguments in situations where no answer is objectively correct.

Courses

At Oxford Summer Courses we are committed to the best academic experiences and to the personalised learning that has made Oxford a global academic force. So while all of our tutors are at the top of their fields depending on your age you'll be taught in slightly different ways. We use small group seminars to ensure that you get greater attention than you could elsewhere. On top of that if you're aged 16-17 or 18-24 then you'll receive weekly tutorials from leading academics mirroring the teaching method that makes Oxford a world-renowned university.

Shantanu Jaiswal – Economics & Business student from 2015

The experience at the Oxford Summer Courses was simply impeccable. You just have the right amount of fun with regular academic sessions as well. Meeting people from different parts of the world and learning with them is a great experience. Academically it helped me to develop my understanding of global economics, while personally it was deeply enriching to meet people from all over the world. Studying economics & business at Oxford Summer Courses is a must and I would recommend that everyone experience it.’
