This year's University of Warwick Summer School 2017 (WSS) will be hosted in the iconic capital city of London bringing together the amazing success of our previous Warwick Economics Summer School which has been running from 2014 with an exciting new collaboration with St Mary's University, London. St Mary's location is hard to beat.
It has all the advantages of easy access to central London but with the peace of a beautiful self-contained campus in the leafy suburb of Strawberry Hill. As well as central London the popular centres of Kingston and Richmond are close by so you'll find plenty of things to do.
Our Summer School is a unique combination of learning and debating with renowned academics and guest speakers, living alongside your peers in a beautiful area of London, networking and socialising and enjoying a fun and engaging social programme.
There are many excellent reasons to apply for the Warwick Summer School including the fact that Warwick is a top 10 Russell Group University.
Summer School students can apply to study one course from a variety of specialist courses in Economics, English and Public Policy. There is also a course for non-economists-the Principles of Economics
Find out what you can expect from our WSS experience by seeing what previous students have experienced including guest lectures from Nobel prize winners, exciting trips and top quality teaching.
