MSc Public Affairs & Lobbying


Course Description

Public Affairs, lobbying and political consultancy are attractive careers for many graduates. Careers in this field are either in dedicated departments within large companies or, more commonly, within specialist consultancy firms. This programme will provide both academic and practical training to assist you in pursuing a career in these exciting professions. Designed in conjunction with leading Public Affairs companies, the programme includes an integrated internship with a Public Affairs consultancy in either London or Brussels, which will provide graduates with significant advantages to pursue such a career.

The course is offered on a full-time basis and is taught over two fifteen-week terms. Each term comprises three modules taught through a programme of formal lectures, directed reading, seminars and, where appropriate, workshops. The course consists of five core modules and one elective. Students will also attend periodic presentations made by Public Affairs professionals. For successful completion of the programme, the student is required to undertake an internship of at least three months with a Public Affairs employer. Upon completion of the internship, both the students and employer submit final reports.

Internship and Internship Report:
All students are required to undertake an internship of at least three months with a Public Affairs employer. This is usually arranged by the Department of Politics and History and takes place in London or Brussels. During the course of the placement, you and your employer will liaise with a dedicated internship tutor to ensure that appropriate progress is being made. At the end of the internship, both you and your employer will submit reports. Outstanding students on this programme have been offered further employment with their placement organisations.
