UWE Economics Society

Does economics feature as part of your course? Do you have a diagnostic and interpretive learning style? Maybe you just fancy a good debate over capitalism, democracy and equality?

Built on the initiative of students, UWE Economics Society is a rapidly growing academic society designed to help our members celebrate their passion for economics.

Working alongside the Academic Community here at UWE, we are offering the opportunity to engage with our prestigious guest speakers as well as a chance to network with some of our graduate employers.
