Our Alumni Says

I think that Immerse Education so far has been a great opportunity to learn both more about the subject I’ve really been interested in, and also to get an insight on what life is like here in the UK and learning more about the traditions which are really different to my day to day life.

My economics classes here at Immerse have been really engaging. The classes are relatively small, which gives the potential for students to say their thoughts and debate, encouraging open thinking and conversations with the rest of the class.

I’ve been looking at various interesting topics, such as game theory, the issue of scarcity and managing resources, and the decision making of firms, which are topics that I had never seen before.

I’ve really enjoyed having lessons with my tutor because he makes lessons really compelling and engaging. He uses a structure which I really personally like, which has a mixture of both practical questions and discussions, which gives a really balanced approach. He has this really interesting and engaging way of tackling the subject, which makes it really easy to follow and to understand.
