last modified Oct 19, 2016 10:59 AM

The University of Cambridge is hosting its first Postgraduate Open Day on Wednesday 2 November 2016 and the Department of Politics and International Studies will be taking part. 

Attending the open day is an excellent way to explore the graduate courses and opportunities available at the Department.

During the first part of the day participants will be able to attend a registration hub where detailed information about the graduate application process is available; current graduate students and Graduate Admissions Office staff will be on hand to answer questions about postgraduate study and student life in the vibrant city of Cambridge. In addition, prospective applicants will have the chance to learn more about individual courses and talk to academic staff from the departments and Colleges.

We will have a stall in the Law Faculty where you can speak to administrators about each of our courses.
