Hansard Scholars Program--Study and Intern in the UK

Check this out--they are still accepting applications for Spring though the formal deadline has passed.

What is the Hansard Scholars Programme?

The Hansard Scholars Programme offers an outstanding opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduate students from overseas to gain academic and practical knowledge of the British political system and current debates in UK public policy. 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 attend courses in British Politics and UK Public Policy at the London School of Economics & Political Science – one of the foremost universities in the world. You will also have lectures with politicians and other senior figures from a variety of organisations on the cutting edge of the UK public policy agenda, and take an intensive internship placement at the heart of British politics – be it with an interest group, campaign organisation, research institution, lobbying company, media organisation or the UK Parliament itself.

If any of your students are interested in studying British politics at the London School of Economics and doing an internship in Parliament, Government or with a lobbying group, media organization or charity, please let us know.
