Program Overview

Program Description:
For over 25 years the Hansard Society’s prestigious Hansard Scholars Programme has been bringing undergraduates and postgraduates from around the world to study and experience British politics from the inside. Our unique programmes, which fuse taught courses with a political internship placement, aim at providing our Scholars with the academic nous, professional skills and contacts necessary to pursue a political or related career. The Hansard Society’s close links with Parliament provide access to the British political system unrivalled by any other study abroad programme.

Academic work is divided between courses, guest lectures and supervised research. Parliament & Politics examines the context, procedures and politics of British parliamentary democracy. Politics & Public Policy analyses current policy issues, including the economy, health, civil liberties and foreign policy. The bespoke courses are organised by the Hansard Society in association with the London School of Economics (though the programme should not be confused with the LSE’s own parliamentary internship scheme). Scholars are enrolled as associate students of the LSE.

The Programme provides an unrivalled chance to develop invaluable professional and political knowledge, skills and networks. The cost includes the placement, UK tuition plus associate student membership at the LSE, accommodation in superior, Central London flats, a full calendar of cultural, social and political events including in the fall and spring semesters, a four day study visit to Edinburgh and a one day study visit to Oxford, and full administrative and pastoral support.
Setting Description:
The programme is based in London, one of the world's greatest political and cultural capitals. The epicentre of the programme is Westminster. Westminster is the UK's equivalent of Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Classes are held on the campus of the London School of Economics and Scholars live in superior, fully-furnished and equipped apartments in Central London within easy reach of both classes and the internships.
