This is one of the longest-running courses of its kind in the UK, and a flagship programme for Hull. We attract some of the highest-calibre students. And many of them go on to successful political careers.
We'll train you not merely to absorb information. But to engage, debate, influence and lead. You’ll develop your portfolio of skills and knowledge relevant to public life through small-group tutorials and one-on-one supervision.
All our 3-year courses offer the option to study abroad for a trimester. Whether in Europe, the USA or Hong Kong. And through our internship opportunities, you’ll get access to Parliament or another politics-related placement. These include the Hansard Society, the Humber Local Economic Partnership, and the Royal Armouries Museum.
At Westminster, you spend three months working with an MP or peer. Our links with a large pool of MPs mean we can likely 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.
