Event description

Description

This event allows students considering their post-18 options an opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of the discipline of Politics at undergraduate level. Sessions will include lectures from established academics on contemporary issues as well as talks by admissions tutors on how to write strong applications and by current Politics students about what to expect when you get to university. Students who have attended these workshops in the past have found them to be extremely useful. In particular, the session on the application process, which is led by a politics admissions tutor, outlines the process in much more detail than time permits during an Open Day.
