Economics (Impact of the Coronavirus Crisis)

This two-day course invites students to think about the macroeconomic impact of covid-19. We will look the impact of the crisis on the financial and bond markets, and on particular sectors of the ‘real’ economy. Together we will discuss the details of current and potential quantitative easing programmes and support for individuals and firms. On the second day we will compare and contrast the 2007-8 crisis with the Covid-19 crisis, and consider lessons that might be learned for our economic recovery this time around. Ultimately, this course aims to improve students’ grasp of how economists, governments and central banks are responding to one of the most serious economic crises of all our lifetimes. Attending will give students the tools to understand and critically engage with financial news about the crisis and its aftermath.​

All of our online courses consist of small seminar groups, with lots of opportunities for discussion and debate with peers as well as learning from our expert tutors. This will be a fully live and interactive event, with summary notes and a certificate of attendance issued upon completion of the course.

This style of learning is an excellent preparation for further study, enabling students to make a more informed choice about future study or career options.
