Review Your Program

I give 5 stars because it was the perfect balance between load of study, intensity of lessons, free time ecc ecc. I learned a lot without being stressed more than the necessary in order to achieve high results.

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

London is expensive. Even if Warwick University have organised a lot of activities, in order to go out in London you have to spend a lot.

Individual Course Reviews

Course Name/Rating:

Behavioral Economics

Course Department: Economics an behavioral sciences
Instructor:
Instruction Language: English
Comments: Absolutely a great course. All the teachers were highly prepared, with really respectable CV and, the most important thing, they really love what they teach. We also had the opportunity to meet the Nobel Prize Winner Dr.Akerlof, Giant of the economics world. Lessons were very intereactive because we were in small a small class of about 20 people, and for this reason was very easy to esablish a relationship both with classmates and professors. During the seminars we worked a lot to prepare the final exams and thanks to that we arrived highly prepared. Fantastic experience with smart people from all over the world.
