Past Events

The Department of Economics has held Economics Experience Events for two years running! A number of students from schools across England have attended.

The day consists of a taster lecture delivered by our academics and a talk providing students information on 'What to do and what to look for when applying to University to study Economics'. Past and current Economics students share their experiences of studying at the University of Leicester. Students are also treated to a complimentary lunch, followed by an interactive International Trade Game.
