Economics Trips to LSE

Students from years 9 and 10 have been learning about the ins and outs of life at Russell Group universities on trips to the London School of Economics this week.

A group of 23 Year 10 students travelled to Holborn with Ms Ingr on Tuesday afternoon for a seminar at the world-famous institution, exploring aspects of higher education that they might not have considered.

The group looked at a selection of courses on offer at UK universities and took some time to think about which subjects they might be best suited for. They also had the opportunity to interrogate current LSE students about their experiences of studying in central London.

More than just thinking about the academic side of life after school, the group considered other essential facets of independence, such as money management. They played a Monopoly-esque game developed by LSE entitled Freshers Fortunes, which helped them understand just how big a bite certain activities will take from a budget.

After a quick tour of the site the students headed back to BDA, armed with some essential knowledge for when it comes to making the big decisions that lie ahead. Year 9 enjoyed their trip to LSE on Friday afternoon.
