MSc Economics students visit the Houses of Parliament

Msc Economics students visited the Houses of Parliament on Friday 24 June 2016 - the day after the EU referendum

On Friday 24 June, students from MSc Economics visited the Houses of Parliament. Just one day after the EU referendum – a monumental day in British politics which saw both a decision to leave the European Union and the resignation of the Prime Minister – the students were eager to gain a deeper understanding of current affairs and practices.

The Economics MSc course is firmly grounded in the real-world application of economic ideas, and includes understanding the economic arguments around government policy. Students were taken to both the House of Lords and the House of Commons, where they learned about the constitution and its history, as well as the political processes in both houses. They also toured the Committee Rooms, where they discussed the formation of the Select Committees who check and review proposed policies before making their results available to the public.

The trip proved invaluable for the students who were able to gain knowledge of the history of parliament, as well as experience the atmosphere of the area post-referendum.
