At university, Lucy studied core microeconomics and macroeconomics modules alongside a mixture of applied economics subjects. Lucy particularly enjoyed studying the Economics of Social Policy and Environmental Economics.

This study also included a literature review which considered the rationale behind government support for the performing arts.
