About Discover Economics
Discover Economics is a campaign led by the Royal Economic Society which aims to:
·       Attract more students from under-represented groups (women, state school/further education college students and ethnic minorities).
·       Broaden the appeal of economics to potential students
·       Change their perceptions of economics and economists

After that session, I am thinking about University. I wasn’t before. I’m more confident now.
