Engage and Socialise

We believe it is important to invest in the whole student experience and welcome you into our community. Through our extracurricular activities, you'll enhance your CV, network with businesses and policy makers and get to know your fellow students, and staff from the Department in a more social environment.

Academic Induction

During Welcome Week, the Department organises a fantastic programme of activities, designed to help you settle in, get to know your fellow students and staff within the Department. Just some of these activities include an orientation game, an international economics game and also a welcome reception and address.

Social Events

We think it’s important to provide you with opportunities to relax and get to know both your peers and tutors outside the classroom. Recent socials have included a First and Second Year Dinner and Quiz, an Undergraduate Mentor Scheme Awards Lunch, a Final Year Countdown Dinner and Disco, and a Research in Applied Economics Afternoon Tea.

Economics Graduation 2019


At the end of your studies, you deserve a great send off and we hold our own graduation ceremonies that allow you to celebrate with family, friends, classmates and academics. As well as the graduation ceremony itself, we also organise an evening drinks reception that allows you to celebrate your hard work and successes. This also includes a short presentation of awards to a number of students for outstanding work and achievement.

Warwick Economics Lectures

Our Warwick Economics Lecture Series provides an excellent opportunity for you to engage with policymakers, practitioners, and influential decision-makers. In their day-to-day position, these people are applying the knowledge and insights generated in academic departments to some of the world's most interesting developments and challenging problems.

Guest Lectures


We work closely with societies in the Department of Economics to make your student experience memorable, including the Warwick Economics Summit, Warwick Women in Economics Society, Rethinking Economics and Warwick Economics Society.
