The Politics Society has a close relationship with the Careers Department through our Departmental Officer  who sits on the Board of Studies Representative. The Politics Society hosts and promotes events through the year to help Politics student get the best out of their degree and to start thinking about work experience, volunteering internship and jobs. In the past we have had speakers on working for MP’s, in Parliament, research, the charitable sectors among other areas.

If you have any suggestions on what sort of events you would like to see us run or know some one in a related sector who would be willing to give a lecture/presentation then please do get in touch.
