UEA lectures for Newton students

Cindy Anggrenia

"My time on the Newton Programme has been excellent for me. Apart from the classes, I have had lots of opportunities to learn new things. The most enjoyable experience that I had was the seminars and lectures that I have attended at UEA. I went to economics, entrepreneurship, maths and philosophy lectures, and all of them were brilliant. The lectures covered a broad range of topics - such as cosmic superfluids in mathematics, and the precautionary principle in philosophy - and were delivered by professors from different universities and practitioners.

"What really caught my attention were the weekly contemporary economics lectures. The topics discussed were mostly around behavioral economics. One of the first lectures I attended was delivered by Rohan Grove, who works in UK HM Revenue and Customs. He talked about the use of control trials in UK taxing policy. It was a very interesting subject, the idea was that by understanding people’s behavior and using randomized controlled trials, the government can make better policies that benefit people.

"Another seminar that I attended was given by Project Manager at JP Morgan, Paul Bedwin. He discussed the varied careers after a degree in Economics, especially in the trading sector. He also gave us students advice about the importance of building skills and experience before diving into the working world. He was very informative because he himself was an alumni of UEA.

"I have to say that those lectures and seminars were so insightful, such invaluable opportunities that opened my mind to new and interesting topics, some of which I never even realised existed before.”
