Discover Economics at Warwick event

Discover Economics aims to open the eyes of Year 10 students from local state schools to the exciting subject of economics, to help them gain a better understanding of what economics is at a crucial stage of their education, enabling them to make informed decisions regarding their future studies. Students and teachers will participate in a number of activities and exciting and insightful talks from academic and professional economists. Our event is particularly designed to emphasise the role of women in economics with the objective to widen female participation within the subject.
