Hear from a graduate

"I was very happy with this course and how it was delivered. It covered all aspects of how policies are made to the important areas of welfare state, social security and social exclusion. I also gained excellent skills in social research methods. I used these skills when writing my dissertation, which has since been used to support a funding bid for the organisation I work for. This has helped me in my role as Chair for Marketing and Fundraising for a charitable organisation."
