Annual Public Lecture

Our annual lecture provides an opportunity for school students to watch internationally-renowned economists present their research. Principally aimed at sixth form students, it’s relevant for those studying economics, maths, business studies and geography, and has become an established part of the school calendar.  The annual lecture is held twice, once in London and once at a different location (currently the University of York).
