Studying a degree with the opportunity to do a placement really appealed to me as a way to give my CV that added edge. Combined with this, Brunel’s good transport links to Westminster made it an obvious choice.
I was fortunate to secure a 12-month placement in a Member of Parliament’s office. As someone who is looking at a future career in public and government affairs, the chance to gain experience in a political environment has been invaluable to me.
Thanks to Brunel’s course structure, I’ve been able to gain real insight into the workings of government departments and agencies, providing me with a practical understanding of UK politics that compliments the theoretical understanding acquired on the course modules.
