Program Description:
Hansard Scholars Programme - Undergraduates

Are you an undergraduate interested in politics and current affairs? Would you enjoy studying and interning in the UK, at the heart of the parliamentary process, alongside key decision-makers and opinion-formers from Parliament, Government, campaign organisations, think tanks, lobbying groups, and the media? Would you enjoy a semester living in one of the most vibrant, exciting, and politically important cities in the world?

As a Hansard Scholar, you will be part of an organisation with an unparalleled reputation in the political world, developed over more than 60 years. You will study British politics, have seminars with politicians and undertake an internship with an organisation which corresponds with your research interests and ambitions – be it with an NGO, a government department, a lobbying group or in the Houses of Parliament themselves!

The Hansard Scholars Programme is a 14-week (eight weeks in summer), full-time course (split equally between study and internship) which offers an outstanding opportunity for international students to gain academic and practical knowledge of the British political system and current debates in UK public policy.
