Economics Society

Who we are

The Economics Society welcomes everyone from all fields and disciplines who has an interest in economics. Whether you want to learn more about the subject or meet and get to know your course mates outside of the classroom, the society provides the perfect opportunity to engage and be amongst others who share the same passion for economics as you.

With access to networking opportunities with lecturers and other professionals, we also hope to provide insights on real world economics and current affairs.


What we do

We aim to bring students with similar interests together by hosting various socials, academic events, and an end of year ball.

In the past, we have held several documentary nights and discussion rounds, talks from successful alumni and other guest speakers such as Dr Yoram Bauman (the world's first stand-up comedian) and John Young from the Bank of England, and many other academic events. On the less serious side, members have enjoyed social events such as ice-skating, laser tag, zorball, bar crawls and nights out. We have also hostedvery successful formals, giving everyone a chance to dress up and join together to celebrate the year.

Offering a wide range of activities and events, engaging in economics has never been more fun!


We kindly ask for a £5 annual membership fee upon joining the society. This cost will cover access to all social and academic events for the entire year, a discounted price on the ball, and a t-shirt to show you’re a proud member of the society! If you wish to become a member of the society, it is important to register with us through the SU by clicking on 'Add to Basket' for a membership.
