Lauren Toner

MSc Political Research

The department's reputation for research preceded it and I'm confident that no other university could offer the combination of expertise, world-class training and constant support that could match that of the Government & Public Policy academics and support staff.
MSc International Relations student Sarah Finlay

Sarah Finley

MSc International Relations

By being pushed to understand the strengths and weaknesses of a piece of academic writing, I am more able to get a better understanding of how I feel about a particular article or book. Developing the skills of critical assessment has not only helped me to gain a more rounded understanding of a particular topic but also has encouraged me to form my own ideas and opinions on academic writing.

Emma Wright

MSc Data Science for Politics

I originally decided to study politics as I wanted to help people, and while statistics may seem like a strange way to fulfil that dream, government and policymaking really do depend on them.
