Course Description

PPE is one of the most famous study subjects in Oxford and also Cambridge. PPE stands for the combination of the study subjects of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Many well-known politicians, such as the former Prime Minister of Great Britain, David Cameron, have studied PPE in Oxford and learned how these subjects are interconnected.

Understanding philosophy gives you the chance to understand the world of thought. Studying politics will show you the functioning of states and how communities and counties are governed. As the world cannot survive on only good thoughts and good governance alone, but also needs people working hard to feed themselves as well as those unable to work themselves, PPE concentrates on its third subject, economics and the importance of its effectiveness. This combination of subjects is an enriching way to get a deep understanding of these three influential aspects of good governance and good political and economical leadership. By joining the PPE Academy, you will be introduced to this world-famous study combination at Oxford and Cambridge.
