Event description

Description

For the sixth consecutive year The Political Studies Association (PSA) will be holding a series of Applying to Study Politics Workshops across the country over the coming months. These events enable students who will be applying for university for entry in 2018 an opportunity to gain a better understanding about the realities of studying Politics at undergraduate level and its benefits.

This workshop at Cardiff University will have a more interactive focus than our normal programme. As well as the usual workshops on the application process and what life as a Politics student is like, the day will also enable students to take part.

The workshop takes place through talks on the discipline of Politics, admissions and career options; and experiences of current Politics students. It will also feature a role-play exercise on political decision-making and student funding.

Who should pay for a university education? The power of the student vote
