For several years now there has been a highly successful seminar held at Sidney Sussex college, at the University of Cambridge. Around 30 undergraduates from across the UK converge for a week long, fully paid submersion in classical liberal political economy.
Modelled on the famous IHS and FEE summer programmes, Freedom Week brings together leading academics to lecture and socialise with students in a relaxed, informal environment. Aside from several hours of lectures per day there are formal dinners, BBQs, punting, and social drinking.
The seminar is free: accommodation, tuition and meals are fully paid for; students only need to get to Cambridge by Monday lunchtime and remain throughout the week.
I have previously given talks on the Financial Crisis and Competition and Monopoly, and am always impressed by the enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity of the students that attend. The Freedom Week alumni is growing significantly and it’s helped launch the careers of a number of UK think tankers. This is a hugely important programme of the UK free market movement.
I highly recommend the programme, and encourage people to pass on the details to interested students.
