These skills are essential if you want to progress on to a research degree and they’re also valuable for a range of roles in politics, campaigning, think-tanks, NGOs, civil or diplomatic services. -We’ll make sure you have an exceptional student experience, with more contact hours than most universities and staff that go the extra mile to support you
