Students from the School of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) go on to do great things after their time with us.

However, the thought of leaving education behind and entering the 'real world' can be daunting. My role is to support students in making this transition, from helping them explore their values and interests, through to highlighting opportunities they can participate in to build their skills, experiences and confidence, whilst they study, and finally to support them in finding their first role after completing their course.

I also run the Year in Industry Programme, which is open to all POLIS undergraduate students (apart from BA Politics and Parliamentary Studies which has its own placement year).
