Develop a pre-university research project in Economics
Studying Economics means looking at the reasons behind human behaviour, as influenced by their access to finite resources.
The Economics Oxbridge Online Research Programme will not only help you master important economic theory and frameworks, but it will also encourage you to think like an economist – and to view the world around you with an economist’s eye.
You will learn from an Economics expert and develop critical skills to develop the captivating career path ahead of you. Most importantly, you will master how to relate the challenging theory you learn to current economics events and debates.
What is the Oxbridge Online Research Programme?
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme (‘OORP’) is designed for students who want to enhance their personal research and study skills in preparation for university, whilst also developing deeper knowledge in their chosen field.
Led by your personal tutor, you will undertake a research project assessed at university-level and receive regular 1:1 supervisions from an expert academic from Oxford or Cambridge University.
This course is ideal for students wanting to gain invaluable experience for writing a dissertation or thesis at university, whilst also familiarising themselves with the demands of an Oxbridge degree. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!
My tutor in Economics is professional and patient, and his explanations made a lot of sense to me. For example, when we were talking about Nash Equilibrium, we played a lot of games because this theory is basically based on game theory. My understanding went deeper as we played the games by ourselves because I was making the decision on my own, then I could think about the shortages of my strategy. Then we analyzed the game together and made assumptions, which improved my skills of thinking the overall effects instead of only focusing on individuals’ decisions.
