Students from the Economics Department are taking part in the inaugural International Study Centre running 20th June - 7th July 2013 in New York, USA.
They will take part in a three day cultural experience in New York followed by an intensive cross discipline academic programme in Leadership and Social Change based at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. The students will work with local community based organisations, and will also experience the 4th of July celebrations and have the opportunity for a weekend visit to Boston.
The aim of the ISC programme is to provide a rewarding international experience while at the same time enhancing student's global competencies and improving employability, leadership and advocacy skills.
