How would you like to engage with policy makers on issues that concern the world?
Warwick Economics Question Time is held during Induction and is very similar in format to the popular BBC television show
It gives new students, as well as other students and staff at the University, an excellent opportunity to engage with politicians, policy makers and academics on major issues and questions that concern the world.
State of the art concert hall
The event takes place in Butterworth Hall at the Warwick Arts Centre, and previous years have seen an audience of over 1,000 taking their seats to watch exciting panellists discussing a range of issues.
Next year's QT will take place on Monday, 1 October 2018 and it will be hosted by the Department of Economics and PAIS. Further details will be published here shortly.
