"WES is a great summit for finding good points to include in your personal statement for university and opening up new perspectives of economics! You will learn so much about economics in the real world that isn’t covered in your school’s textbooks." - Avani
The Warwick Economics Summit is an entirely student-run international forum where talented university students listen to some of the world’s most revered and inspirational speakers. The next edition will run from 4th of February - 6th February 2022.
The summit’s focus goes far beyond the field of economics, encompassing the broader spheres of the social sciences, including development, politics, journalism, and international relations.
