2013/14 Postgraduate Profiles

Neema Begum, Political Science (British Politics and the State) MA

Neema Begum, Political Science (British Politics and the State) MA

Description
After completing my undergraduate degree in Political Science and International Relations at POLSIS, I chose to continue studying at Birmingham at postgraduate level. I knew that by studying with POLSIS, I would continue to be challenged and encouraged in my studies; I also knew that I would benefit from both the expertise within the department and from the excellent academic teaching and a solid research base.
Jamie Vickery, International Political Economy MA

Jamie Vickery, International Political Economy MA

Description
From my undergraduate experience, I already knew that the level of support that I would receive from the department would be high and I was also excited about the introduction of environmental governance and climate change politics modules (the political area that I did eventually want to focus on) helped to persuade me to come back.
POLSIS Bursary: Edward Li, International Relations (Contemporary Asia-Pacific) MA

POLSIS Bursary: Edward Li, International Relations (Contemporary Asia-Pacific) MA

Description
I chose to study with POLSIS as the University of Birmingham has a rather high ranking in the subject field of Political Science. Before I applied to Birmingham I also read about the profiles of the professors and lecturers on the POLSIS website and learned that they have brilliant qualifications and experiences.
Megan Baxter, International Relations (Gender) MA

Megan Baxter, International Relations (Gender) MA

In addition to the full fee bursary that POLSIS offer, in 2013 we were also able to offer a £500 Masters fee reduction to a small number of final year Birmingham POLSIS students who had applied for postgraduate study with POLSIS. Megan Baxter(BA History and Political Science) was one of the recipients of this fee discount and is now studying for an MA in International Relations (Gender).
