The Financial Times and Lloyds Bank schools initiative

The Financial Times and Lloyds Bank have joined forces to enable sixth formers studying in the UK, and their teachers, to gain free access to the FT.com.

This will be of benefit to a wide range of students - particularly those studying for AS and A-Levels in economics, business studies and politics. Economics especially is often seen as ‘overly theoretical’ and often divorced from 'reality', and it is certainly the aim of this website to decode as much of the theory as possible, as well as provide students with up-to-date examples to allow them to put their studies into a practical and relevant context.

We are very happy to support the FT-Lloyds Bank initiative, and will regularly point students towards articles which we feel are especially relevant to particular topics or contexts.
