Learning

Outline

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). Considering how to look at measuring economic performance, markets, and competition for all-round, immersive learning.

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.

The experience

Discover the best of British culture and beyond to find out what makes Great Britain so great by visiting all of its wonderful landmarks on foot, by bike or via the tube.

Hop on to London’s infamous tube system, and explore trendy Shoreditch (with its delicious eateries and boutique shops), visit Camden market for some vintage finds, or stroll along the Thames and watch the sunset behind the London Eye. Wherever you choose, you’re sure to be captivated by the city’s atmospheric charm.
