The Hansard Scholars staff is delighted to announce important changes to its Summer Academic Internship Programme.
Effective Summer 2013, the Programme will be shortened from 11 weeks to eight. The Summer 2013 dates are: May 25 – July 20. Applications are now being accepted and the closing date is April 15. We operate a rolling admissions process and aim to let applicants know the status of their application within a week of submission.
If you’re interested in taking part in a unique political internship in the Houses of Parliament, a UK government department, a campaign organisation or the media, as well as studying courses in British politics taught in association with the London School of Economics & Political Science, you can now apply for the Spring 2013 Hansard Scholars Programme.
Spring 2013 really will be a fascinating time to be involved in British politics and you can be a part of this – witnessing the debates, decisions and developments first hand as they emerge.
Are you an undergraduate interested in politics and current affairs? Would you enjoy studying and interning in the UK, at the heart of the parliamentary process, alongside key decision-makers and opinion-formers from Parliament, Government, campaign organisations, think tanks, lobbying groups, and the media? Would you enjoy a semester living in one of the most vibrant, exciting, and politically important cities in the world?
