University of Leicester selected to deliver new module

The University of Leicester has been chosen as one of only 13 universities to deliver a new Parliamentary Studies module, approved and co-taught by the Houses of Parliament.  

This project, which has the support of the Speakers of the House of Commons and House of Lords, will give students a detailed knowledge of how the UK Parliament works through seminars delivered by senior Parliamentary staff, as well as Dr Richard Whitaker of the Department of Politics and International Relations

Students studying the module will have the chance to visit the Palace of Westminster, as well as receiving talks at their university from Parliamentary clerks covering a range of topics from the legislative process to the changing role of the House of Lords.  

Piloted at the University of Sheffield in 2012/13, the module is designed to be of particular value to those considering a career in politics.
