Following directly on from the work you’ll be doing during the regular fortnightly Economics sessions, we’ll dedicate two whole days over the Summer holidays to a deeper exploration of key Economics topics and skills for Oxbridge applicants.
Dates: Saturday 6th & Saturday 13th August 2022
We will put a special focus on preparing you for an Economics-based interview, including how to:
- Structure your arguments in response to economic questions in order to demonstrate insight, logical reasoning, and nuance
- Quickly analyse prompts like economic graphs and respond to interview-style questions on them
- Approach tricky game theory or expected value problems, which are notorious interview favourites but very different from anything you'll see at school
- Put your thoughts into words in interview-style hotseat questioning, with individual feedback on each answer
The course will be highly interactive, involving tutor-guided group discussion among students as well as direct teaching by tutors.
"It was really nice to hear other people's ideas and how they responded to the same question that we had discussed in our group and it was good to get some constructive feedback each time. Overall it was a really useful day and I'm glad I attended :)" - Kyna
"It was a very useful and interactive course that gives an insight in what to expect at interviews, for example: game theory and graph analysis. The tutors were really helpful and friendly and would help us if we were stuck in the break out rooms. I would 100% recommend this course to someone else." - Maanas
