Your Career

In addition to preparing students for a professional career in politics and public policy, the MA Politics opens up a wide range of career pathways for graduates.

In recent years, our graduates have gone primarily into areas such as the public service (civil service, foreign service), political and parliamentary research, finance and consultancy, the voluntary sector, journalism, and teaching. Several have gone on to further training in professions such as accountancy or law, or have taken postgraduate degrees with a view to pursuing a university career.
