We take you to the heart of contemporary political debate. You’ll assess and challenge arguments over the key issues of the day. Possession and exercise of power. Wealth and inequality. Individual and collective identity. The use of violence for political ends. These types of issues drive today’s world. And by examining them, you’ll gain critical insights into the domestic and global significance of politics.
Through our unique internship opportunities, you can get access to Parliament or an alternative politics-related placement. These include the Hansard Society, the Humber Local Economic Partnership, and the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.
Our Westminster placement scheme has been running for over 35 years, and is one of the most extensive of its kind in the UK. You’ll get the rare opportunity to work alongside an MP or peer for a whole year. Our links with a large pool of MPs mean we're likely to be able to match you with a politician whose role reflects your area of political interest. While on placement, you'll enjoy access to our exclusive seminar series presented by senior Parliamentary officials including Black Rod and the Speaker.
