I chose PAIS at Warwick because not only is the Department one of the most academically excellent within the country, but I felt that it was one of the most vibrant and friendly of all the universities that I looked at. I think that it is extremely inspiring to be lectured and taught by some of the leaders in their fields of study, and learning about research from those who have conducted it firsthand.

Outside of my studies, I am heavily involved within the Politics Society. Warwick has more societies available than any other university and so there are endless opportunities to make friends and have fun. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to be an Ambassador for the department, helping on Open Days.

Not only have I enjoyed reading Politics at university, but I think the degree here has given me vital confidence, communication and various other transferable skills which I feel have dramatically improved my future prospects. That is my favourite thing about PAIS. Not only will you receive the best education possible, but you will make real friends for life and the department strives endlessly to offer pastoral support and also employment support to make your job applications the best they possibly can be.
