14 days commencing:
Study Economics with us and you’ll explore key areas such as supply and demand, market structures and discover how government intervention can help or hinder situations. We’ll also look at macroeconomics; marketing and business management to ensure you build a solid skillset that translates to all kinds of careers outside the learning sphere.
Learning in a small group (no more than 8 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.
It’s all about balance. Study with us at Cambridge and we’ll help you embrace everything the city has to offer – from socialising with new friends with shared interests to field trips and excursions for practical lessons you just can’t learn from a textbook. We understand students. We make sure you’re stimulated with a social calendar that packs it all in, from traditional guided tours of the University museums to a tranquil afternoon punting on the River Cam.
And of course, you’ll experience the true Cambridge way of life from weekly formal dinners to competitive debating and croquet. Remember to save some energy for dancing the night away at a disco!

"The best lesson I have had so far was at the beginning of the course when we studied Game Theory, and when we did presentations in class about shops or platforms that we had to imagine ourselves."
"The economics course I'm taking is really helpful as a range of topics were introduced and explained clearly to us. "
"My mentor, Mr. Christian Holm has been an absolute pleasure. I always look forward to his lessons, not only for my passion for economics but because I feel Mr. Holm has been great at dissecting complicated and large ideas, making them simpler and easier to digest."
"The tutor brought whole new perspective to subjects that I understood differently before. He really made us think outside the box and I feel like I’ve challenged intellectually."
Home to Cambridge University since 1209, this city is famous for its cyclists, its museums, and of course, the 107 Nobel Laureates. But have you heard of the Mathematical Bridge (c.1749)- the first bridge built using mathematical principles? Or did you know that the first official game of football with rules similar to those we use now was played in 1848 in the middle of the city? Cambridge has so much to offer, from a vibrant history to cobbled streets and cozy cafes. It’s the perfect place to study, and spend a summer exploring.
You will be staying in single or twin room college accommodation, occupied by students during term time, located within a mile of the centre.
