We’ll explore everything economics connects with and affects, from daily consequences in society to the bigger picture contextually. Our teachings are based on real-life scenarios and could include game theory and negotiations, analyzing social choice, market success and failure and capitalism. Once we’re clued up on all that, we’ll shift our focus to globalisation and economic development.

Teaching methodology

Learn the Oxford way with tutorial-style teaching. Your expert tutor will foster self-directed learning and critical thinking through interactive seminars in small groups (no bigger than 8). During your course, you will complete two pieces of independent work (essays or problem sheets), which your tutor will then evaluate in either a 1:1 or 2:1 tutorial. Tutorials will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your work and feedback with your tutor and learn new perspectives from your classmates. On completion of the course, you'll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.

The experience

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!

Stay in Cambridge

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. Your accommodation will be ideally located to explore all the best areas of the city, from its oldest colleges to its lovely cafes. Ensuite rooms may be available at some locations.

You will get a chance to eat in a variety of restaurants in Cambridge, tasting food from all over the world. On top of that, you’ll be treated to a delicious formal dinner in your college - a three-course meal where everyone gets a chance to dress up!
