Postgraduate Study

We recognise the complexities of political life and apply a shared imperative of rigour, analysis, and in-depth investigation across all our studies.

We offer an education that goes beyond the job market, our education is about being better human beings and good citizens. In a democracy, active citizenship requires awareness and participation and both the ability to understand and assess public debates. We pride ourselves on turning students into independent researchers who take responsibility for their own learning.
