What about y=f(x)? Did you do mathematics at high school, but have your skills in solving mathematical problems faded away during the summer? Do you want to start your bachelor Economics and Business Economics in Utrecht with more self confidence and a renewed insight in the relevant mathematical knowledge?

If your answer to all three questions is 'yes', then the Summer School Refreshing Mathematics A at the Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E) is a good starting point for your study of Economics and Business Economics! To be more clear, this course does not replace a maths course at high school nor is it intended to eliminate a math deficiency. This course does, however, ensure that your math skills will be up to date ? again ? and that you start your study with more self confidence. Although during the summer school the same material is dealt with as during the extra digital tutorials of the first year course in Mathematics, the advantage is that the relevant material of high school maths is refreshed before the start of your bachelor economics. And you will already meet some of your fellow students and teachers.
