Open Days

In light of the latest advice about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our in-person Cambridge Open Days have been cancelled. However, we are excited to announce that we will be delivering Virtual Open Days on 2 and 3 July 2020.

The Faculty of Economics fully participates in the Cambridge Open Days in early July.
There is a course presentation and information stand for Economics, giving you the opportunity to find out more about Economics at Cambridge and talk with Faculty members. You can also visit Colleges during the Cambridge Open Days.
Please see the Faculty of Economics updated information about Open Days here.

During the year Colleges also organise their own Open Days, which may include an Economics subject talk and/or an opportunity to talk with the Director of Studies in Economics.

It is essential to book in advance to attend one of the Cambridge or College Open Days. More information is available at

Sutton Trust Summer School in Economics

The Sutton Trust Summer Schools are free subject-specific residential courses for Year 12 (or equivalent) students from UK state-maintained schools. The five-day summer schools in July and August allow students to explore their interest in one of 22 subject courses and gain an insight into what it is like to live and study as a first-year undergraduate student at Cambridge. The programme includes lectures, seminars, discussion groups, practical work and social activities, as well as the opportunity to meet current staff and students and to live in a Cambridge College.


Schedule for Economics

The Faculty of Economics participates in the scheme and the participants can expect six different sets of between 2 and 3 hours of lectures, problem solving sessions, workshops, and discussion groups. Examples of lectures covered include the following topics:

  • Labour Market Economics
  • Urban Economics
  • The Economics of Regulations
  • Competition and Markets
  • Running the British Economy
  • Economics and Banking
  • Strategic Thinking of Game Theory
  • The Economics of Brexit
  • Economics in practice
