Politics and Economics

Summer Boarding Courses’ Politics & Economics programme has been designed for the political leaders of tomorrow. Our Politics & Economics students at Oxford College will develop their understanding of key concepts in the process of political governance, and how different forms of political impact on society. In addition, they will discover how governments and governmental policies are maintained or changed, while furthering their ability to evaluate the ideologies and values at the heart of different political systems.

As economic considerations are at the heart of policy making, this programme will also present to students how the study of Economics shapes political thinking and ideologies, both nationally and internationally. Students will focus on how economic resources are politicised to develop domestic and foreign policy.
