Course study environment
  • The supervisory relationship is central to the development of the student's knowledge base in relation to his or her research topic. Admission to the public policy programme is highly selective and is dependent upon a good match being found between student interests and supervisor capabilities.
  •  Each student is allocated a principal supervisor from within the Department of Political Economy. He or she will be qualified and experienced in the relevant research area and responsible for all aspects of supervision, to include giving advice about the nature of research, the level of standards expected, literature and sources, and attendance at taught classes. Each student is allocated a second supervisor who may be a member of the Department, but could be subject specialist drawn from another department within the School of Social Science and Public Policy.
