Scholars outside Westminster Abbey

Scholars outside Westminster Abbey

For over 25 years the Hansard Society’s prestigious Hansard Scholars Programmes have been bringing undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals from around the world to study and experience British politics from the inside.

Our unique programmes, which fuse taught courses with a political internship placement, aim at providing our Scholars with the rigorous academic background and sharp professional insights necessary to take the next step in their political careers, both inside and outside of academia.

All of our Scholars’ interests and ambitions are carefully considered on an individual basis, allowing us to design a specialised programme that facilitates the long term goals of each Scholar.
