Learning

Outline

Economics and Finance Cambridge summer school at Oxford Summer Courses for ages 16-17 years. Study Economics and Finance with Oxford Summer Courses. Economics and Finance affect us all, in business and in life. As you explore the world around you and look toward your future career, you’ll understand its implications even more. Our Economics and Finance course is designed to help you dissect the most important issues from macroeconomics (international level) and how businesses succeed and fail within a domestic economy (microeconomics). Consider how to look at measuring economic performance, markets, and competition for all-round, immersive learning. Do you want to know how the world really works? This course will have you thinking like an economist in no time, giving you new insight into the vast system that connects us all. Set and reflect on ambitious goals with our support, engage in tutorial Q&A sessions, participate in an academic skills masterclass for critical thinking development, explore future career pathways through expert speakers, and can visit different Cambridge colleges for a comprehensive Cambridge summer school experience.

Teaching methodology

Learning in a small group (no more than 15 students and often fewer) means that you get quality time with your teacher and ask as many questions as you like! Through interactive learning, our teachers will guide you through new concepts and assign you practice tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You will also have an opportunity for group work, independent research, and homework assignments to be discussed in class. Small classes mean everyone gets to have their say, and students learn from debating with one another, as well as from their tutor.

Review

Dev, United Kingdom

"My mentor at Oxford Summer Courses, Mr. Christian Holm, has been an absolute pleasure. I always look forward to his lessons, not only for my passion for economics but also because I feel Mr. Holm has been great at dissecting complicated and large ideas, making them simpler and easier to digest. The summer school experience with Mr. Holm as my mentor at Oxford Summer Courses has been invaluable in enhancing my understanding of economics."
