Economics and politics

Short courses with Oxford University

Gain an understanding of policy-making and political systems

Arguably, there is little in our lives that economics and politics doesn't touch. These days, the study of both is probably more exciting and more useful than ever.

An appreciation of economics has become increasingly necessary to make sense of governmental policymaking, the conduct of business, transfer of wealth, and the enormous economic transformations throughout the world. The study of politics provides a thorough understanding of the impact of political institutions on modern societies. 

Gain credit from short courses

Many of our short courses, including flexible online courses, weekly classes (both in Oxford and online) and some summer schools, can be studied for credit, which means they can count towards a recognised qualification such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.
