Warwick Economics Summer School

The Department of Economics at The University of Warwick is launching its next Warwick Economics Summer School, a three week programme which will run from July 17th – August 6th 2016. Our Intermediate Microeconomics course is aimed at current undergraduates studying Economics.

Alongside the teaching and learning, we have an inspirational programme of evening speakers with Nobel Prize winner Professor George Akerlof, Nick Crafts, CBE, world-renowned Economic historian and Julie Meyer, award winning American entrepreneur, Chief Executive and business commentator delivering talks and sharing their insights with students in previous years. It is an excellent opportunity for students to further enhance their skills and knowledge in Economics through studying and debating at one of the leading Economics departments in Europe.

Our Microeconomics course aims to deepen students’ understanding in core areas of Economics and will reflect the highest standards of Warwick learning.

Great Discounts: apply early for discounts, offers also available for groups of 5+ students including free teacher places.

Over the past two years, 100% of our student cohort would recommend our programme to a friend. It is a great opportunity to integrate with students from across the globe with 150 students from over 37 different countries attending last year's programme.

We look forward to receiving your application and aim to get back to you with a decision within one week.

Course leader

Dr Christian Soegaard

Target group

Economics undergraduates.
Students must be aged 18+ at the time of the Summer School.

Course aim

This course will cover the main topics of microeconomics including the study of consumer and producer choice and decisions, firm behaviour, partial equilibrium and general equilibrium, welfare economics, imperfect competition, game theory, monopoly and oligopoly, asymmetric information, externalities and public goods.

Whether it is explaining the behaviour of consumers, producers or government agencies, microeconomics lies at the heart of decision making.

Our Microeconomics course will blend theory and practical relevance and focus on a range of applications including the regulation of firms in competitive markets, consumer behaviour and uncertainty, and the role played by non-commercial entities such as government in supplying services.

This course will further focus on decision making under uncertainty and Game Theory and provide a thorough grounding in microeconomics at the intermediate level.
