PPE Taster Day for Prospective Students

16 November 2016 @ 10:00 - 16:00

Philosophy Lecture during the PPE Taster Day

Do you meet our entry requirements and are you interested in our PPE programme? Would you like to get an actual feel of what it is like to study PPE? On Wednesday 16 November we organize a ‘ PPE taster day’ at the John Stuart Mill College, VU Amsterdam.

You will follow a short class in each of the PPE disciplines (philosophy, politics and economics), followed by a ‘PPE in Practice’ session. During that session you will apply the knowledge that you have just gained to a real-world problem. You will meet potential fellow students. Of course during breaks you will also be able to ask questions to current VU students, our PPE student advisor or the PPE teaching staff.
