EconSoc is the largest academic society at Warwick and since 1989, we have provided our members with high-quality academic support, world-class career opportunities and memorable social events! We are the only society at Warwick that does it all!
The Warwick Economics Society Speaker Series aims to provide our members with access to world- renowned speakers from across the economics, politics and business spectrums. We hope that by providing the opportunity to interact with experts in their respective fields our members will be kept abreast of world developments; and inspired to go on and shape the economic landscape. Last year, we hosted Cass Sunstein, author of Nudge, and Huw Pill, Chief Economist at the Bank of England.
With the support of our sponsors, we are able to organise frequent events and insights into a variety of different career paths. This includes our unmissable Spring Week Panel in Term 1, where students and representative from top firmsshare tips about the application process. We also provide CV advice, insight days at our sponsors' offices as well as an array of formal and informal networking events with representatives from prominent firms.
We provide an excellent platform to meet, socialise and network with fellow students of similar interests. The society hosts a huge range of events throughout the year, including several Fresher Socials in Term 1 to help first years make new friends, as well as a Summer Party in Term 3 to celebrate the end of the year!
Warwick Economics Society organise both a domestic tour in Term 1 and a foreign tour in Term 2, which provides another great opportunity to meet other members and course mates. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, we are able to subsidise the cost substantially, allowing you to visit amazing places and make new friends all for a hugely discounted price! Last year we travelled to Bristol on our Domestic Tour, and Barcelona for our International Tour!
In February, Warwick Economics Society will host its annual ball, the highlight of the academic year. Over 300 society members attend this memorable event and celebrate a great year before the stress of exams takes over!
Warwick Economics society are delighted to run football, netball and badminton teams at both social and competitive levels. Sports teams are a great way to get involved with the soicety and meet other economics students whilst keeping fit and enjoying a break from studying!
We offer members the opportunity to become more engaged within their local and global communities. Through our food & clothing drives, volunteering programs, and fundraising events for impactful non-profits, we hope to enact positive change in the lives of the socioeconomically disadvantaged. We are committed to continuing last year’s impressive charity work towards our £10,000 legacy fundraising target for our chosen charity, EduSpots.
Assumptions is Warwick Economics Society’s official student-run magazine and blog, filling you in with the latest economic news and current affairs. Written and published by students, we aim to explore topics and issues in economics, politics and other related disciplines. If you wish to write an article for our magazine or blog then do not hesitate to contact; applications for Junior Editor positions will open during Term 1.
