One of the strengths of the Economics Tripos at Cambridge is the breadth of the material it covers. In the first year, students have compulsory papers in both history and politics, alongside standard papers in macroeconomics, microeconomics and mathematics. As someone with very wide interests, this aspect of the course has been really enjoyable for me. It has encouraged me to think holistically and draw links not only between different elements of the Tripos, but also with regard to current affairs and wider economic issues.
Here at Jesus there is a fantastic level of support for your studies with some impressive supervisors. I have really appreciated the high level of cooperation between the different Economics students at Jesus across all the years. There is a real sense that you are supported every step of the way through your Tripos.
