Will Monaghan, BA Social Policy (2006)

Will MonaghanI studied Social Policy at Birmingham. I had a particular interest in refugees and the way faith interacts with politics. My dissertation focused on whether or not the government should fund faith schools. In my final year I applied for several positions, all within the public sector, as I developed an interest in government services over the course of my Social Policy degree.

I am now working as the Cancer Commissioning Manager for Bristol Primary Care Trust, as part of the NHS graduate management training scheme. As part of the training scheme, I am undertaking a Masters degree in Health and Public Sector Leadership based at Birmingham and Manchester Universities.

I loved the time spent with fellow social policy students and the parties that followed essay hand in days! I continue to benefit from the things I learnt and the people I studied under at Birmingham.
