16-18 Year Olds.

For the first time in our history, we have opened the Summit to 16-18 year olds!

We believe that by allowing a younger audience to attend, we can help inspire their career and university course choices and show them a side of the social sciences that they may have never seen before. Events and activities like these are often limited to university students or older, but we think that in order to increase diversity within the social sciences, it is important to expose younger students to all they have to offer.

Economics Has a Diversity and a Perception Problem: The Impact on Higher Education

3rd Feb 2021

Exclusive event for 16-18 year olds

5 -7 Feb 2021

Virtual Summit Weekend

16th Nov 2020

Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to host a virtual panel discussion with representatives from SEO London, Zero Gravity and Discover Economics.


The discussion centred around 'Economics Has a Diversity and a Perception Problem: The Impact on Higher Education'.

3rd Feb 2021

Alongside the Summit, we will also be hosting an event on the 3rd of February with some of our key partners, that is tailored exclusively towards 16-18 year-olds. It’s aim is to help you understand more about economics and where it can take you. We also hope to discuss life as a student and how to prepare the best university applications.


More details will be released in the upcoming days, keep checking this page to find out how to attend.

Please note that we have conducted the necessary safeguarding measures to ensure that all of our events are safe to attend.
