The Department regularly hosts social events, and Economics based seminars/talks by Academics, prominent speakers, Industry experts and current and alumni students. The events are focused on creating a community within the department while delivering information which may not necessarily be covered in the classroom.
Economics students have their own Economics society. They hold regular events such as movie nights and social outings, many of which are based on Economic interest.
The Department also run regular Student-Staff Liaison Committee meetings. Staff-Student liaison committee exists to provide a forum for the discussion of matters of interest and concern to staff and students in the working of the Department. This is a great platform for students to become Student Representatives or liaise with their reps to raise any issues, queries or recommendations that they may have within the department, which will be communicated with academic staff.
All students at Royal Holloway can enter the Royal Holloway Passport Scheme, which recognises achievements beyond the classroom such as volunteering, tutoring or becoming a Student Ambassador for the department.
