Philosophy, Politics, & Economics Academy
PPE is one of the most famous study subjects in Oxford and also Cambridge. PPE stands for 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.

Individual Airport Pick Up & Drop Off Service
On arrival in the UK, we can arrange for an individual private pick up from any major UK airport Heathrow or Birmingham Airport to Oxford. If you are going to Cambridge we can arrange for a pick up service from Heathrow, Luton or Stansted Airport.
At the end of the programme, a private transfer to return to the airport can be arranged.
The cost of this service is 300GBP one way.
On arrival and departure days, we operate shuttle services between London Heathrow Airport and Oxford or Cambridge. The shuttle service is by private coach traveling with student groups attending our university-level and high-school programmes. The shuttle drops delegates off at their accommodation. On arrival days, we request that delegates’ flights land before 6pm in order to board the final shuttle bus. Similarly, on departure days, we request that delegates’ flights depart after 2pm. The shuttle service does not include an unaccompanied minor service. If the airline you are traveling with requires this, please speak to a customer service representative at least 2 weeks prior to traveling to discuss your travel arrangements. Our Delegate Advisors (in CBL International, orange t-shirts) are present in the arrivals area of major terminals in London Heathrow Airport throughout the arrival day greeting our delegates and ensuring that the shuttle service does not leave until we have made contact with all those who have pre-booked this service. Please note there may be some wait time on arrival at the airport for the shuttle service, and for arrival after 6pm, there may be no shuttle available. This service is only available to and from London Heathrow Airport. The shuttle service is none refundable and it cannot be changed to a VIP airport pick up or drop off service. The cost of this service is 50GBP for a return journey.
If you require a VIP airport pick up or drop off service this must be requested 4 weeks prior to the start of the programme. For room upgrades the same rule applies. You must request it 4 weeks before the programmes starts. This can only be booked upon availability.
