Hi,

I've started this thread to separate Economics applicants from the main Warwick 2021 applicants page.

A place to chat about offers and applications.

Is Warwick your likely first choice?

LSE will have less of a fun uni experience, but you will have extremely good graduate prospects and people always say LSE trains you really well for the best jobs. However, it will be more expensive and its in a city rather than warwick which is in coventry. If you are not a very social person I would say LSE because your one of a select few to be even given the opportunity.

Just interested to hear how you guys stay up to date/learn more about economics outside of school? Personally, I read articles of interest on the FT and The Economist but I am curious to hear how other people stay up to date with the subject.

FT through my school account and Bloomberg (God bless the 3 month $0.99 offer where I create a new account every 3 months).

I'm mainly interested in energy, agricultural and mineral economics. So I also read a lot of S&P Platts. But that's quite specialist.

Yeah I do the same, I also read reuters daily. The app also send a notification everytime there's notable economic news e.g BofE changing base interest rate or updates on quarterly GDP growth etc. Both the FT and The Economist are very good too.

Hey guys, does anyone know how competitive this course is? I've applied for PPE at Warwick but am strongly considering asking to switch to straight Economics but I'm worried that Econ is more competitive and I will likely get rejected.

I'm a gap year student and have achieved A*A*A in Economics, Politics and Philosophy and I'm predicted A in Maths. Do you recon Its likely I'll get an offer?
