Career and Apprenticeship Opportunities

Warwick in London, University of Warwick, Pre-University Taster in Economics

Intellectually curious, keen to make new friends, have a thirst for knowledge and wish to test-drive university learning in the heart of London’s exciting, new Knowledge Quarter? 

The University of Warwick – one of the UK’s leading Russell Group Universities - is offering a three-day, Economics Taster Course in London.  The course is designed for students who will be applying (or have applied) to university and who want to enhance the school curriculum with teaching delivered by Warwick staff.     It will be of particular interest to students who are considering doing an Economics degree – whether that be straight Economics, PPE, Maths and Economics, Politics and Economics, or any course with an Economics element such as Business. 

Each taster is three days long and packed with lectures, seminars and personal effectiveness and communication skills workshops.  Tasters also include a guest speaker, who will deliver a lecture in London’s iconic Shard. 

The next available dates are:

  • Wed 14 - Fri 16 February 2018
  • Mon 9 - Wed 11 April 2018
  • Wed 30 May - Fri 1 June 2018

Price and discounts: We offer an early bird booking discount. If you book more than one week before the course start date, you will pay a reduced fee of £350. We also offer a £350 fee for groups of 5 or more from one school regardless of when you book. Full price £495.

A number of bursary places are available on each course.

Entry criteria: We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic individuals. You must be at least 16 years in order to apply and be undertaking or have previously completed A-levels or equivalent (key stage 5).

There are no subject specific criteria apart from an interest in economics and the desire to learn new ideas. Whilst this course may be of particular interest to Economics, Business, Politics and Maths students there are no subject pre-requisites and the course is equally suitable for non-Economists.

More information about the course and the application form can be found online.

We look forward to welcoming you on one of our courses soon.
