HNC’s A Level Humanities, Business and Economics students have recently returned from an enlightening trip to the UK’s Capital city and global financial hub, London, to discover more about UK economics across a range of sectors, and find out more about the wide range of careers their qualifications can take them.

During the three-day trip, the group of 40 students were invited to a range of high profile locations, including an enlightening visit to the Bank of England, where the group developed their knowledge of their understanding of monetary policy, and how this is used to support economic stability, and how important economic stability is for our day to day lives. The group were also invited to spend time at’s London headquarters, taking part in invaluable sessions on data analysis and careers focused workshops.  During the trip, the group were also invited to visit one of the UK’s largest football stadiums, home to the premier league club, Tottenham Hotspurs. Here the group toured the stadium and discovered how even multi-million-pound businesses are having to be creative to bolster their revenue streams in this period of economic uncertainty.

The group, who stayed in the heart of the city centre just a stone’s throw away from iconic London landmarks such as The British Museum and St Paul’s Cathedral, also enjoyed a Thames River cruise and a visit to the heart of London’s financial district, braving the very top of a skyscraper to enjoy far reaching views of the city!

Daryl Stappard, Head of Faculty Humanities, comments “Our annual trip to our beautiful capital city is a highlight of the calendar. This year 40 students from across the Humanities and Business faculties joined us in discovering more about our Capital city, and how the decisions made here impact us. It was an especially exciting trip this year, we went at the time of being on the cusp of a General Election and as group we all knew at the time there could potentially be a change of Leadership following a period of economic instability. The group were incredibly engaged and made the most of every opportunity presented to them on the trip. I know that the group have found this visit incredibly useful, not only for bolstering their wider knowledge of economics and finance but for also helping them to plan their next steps”.
