Economics and the Pandemic

Economics Taster Lecture

Speaker: Omar Kaykhusraw, Lecturer in Economics

Date: Tuesday 15 June 2021, 4:30-5:30pm

During these unprecedented times, uncertainties are high, and the future looks radically different to our pre-pandemic lives.

In this session, we discuss how Economics as a subject and its various strands allow us to understand and navigate a wide array of challenges posed by such crises, and its relevance now more than ever during and after the coronavirus pandemic. We look at how tools that we learn as students of Economics allow us to analyse real world events and offer unique solutions that attempt to fix issues that society might face at any given time.

This taster will also include an introductory overview of studying at NCH, and there will be ample time for Q&A with Faculty and Student Ambassadors.

Here’s what previous participants have said about our Economics Taster Lectures:

“NCH London is such a positive university, and I’ve been lucky enough to attend two of their online taster lectures. These provided insight into a wide range of aspects of Economics, no matter your previous level of understanding. I strongly recommend you attend these taster lectures if you’re able to!”

“The lecture was a brilliant introduction to the course – not too complex, but enough to interest me in Economics without being confusing!”

“I really liked the polls and the interactive nature of the lecture!”

“I enjoyed the presentation and the introduction to NCH at the beginning of the session. The continuous Q&A feature was also interesting, especially as current students were answering the questions.”

“The taster lecture was really informative. I didn’t have any knowledge of Economics and managed to follow everything – it was really detailed, with lots of examples. Excellent!”

“It was really thought-provoking and opened me up to a new way of thinking about Economics, while learning about what it’s like to study at NCH.”
