Student experience

Greer Clarke

Studying the Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics was awesome... It was great because as well as studying the three disciplines, each year included a subject just for PPE students that unified the three worlds of thought. The classes were small, so you made friends quickly and felt part of a community, and the lecturers were passionate, world-class experts.
