Introduction to Politics & Economics
Eton College | Ages 12 - 16
Deepen your knowledge of the political and economic world as you prepare for your future studies. By evaluating the ideologies and processes at the heart of various political systems, our Politics & Economics course at Eton will help you better grasp geopolitical trends in world politics.
At the end of each week the school comes together and classes take part in a group presentation we call Time to Shine. These projects are a highlight of the week’s work and provide students with an opportunity to showcase their learning and development during the summer programme. By taking part in Time to Shine students gain valuable experience in practising their collaboration and presentation skills in front of a larger audience.

How do politicians win elections? What are the principles which underpin a powerful election campaign? In this 10-hour project, Introduction to Politics & Economics students will develop a campaign for their team’s inclusion on the SBC International Student Council at Eton, to be voted for by their fellow SBC at Eton students.
