Welcome to the MPhil in Public Policy


The Cambridge MPP is an interdisciplinary graduate degree intended for individuals who are developing, or hope to develop, careers as leaders in policy formulation and implementation, within local or national government, in the not-for-profit sector, with an NGO or within the private sector. 

The course aims to promote and strengthen the interconnections between science, research and innovation in public policy. Integral to these aims, the MPP will promote better awareness within policy circles of scientific developments and emerging technologies, which in turn will encourage long-term thinking and better strategic planning.   

The course provides students with a range of opportunities to develop their academic and practical understanding of public policy through a broad set of lectures, seminars, exercises and simulations.  Our aim is to accelerate your understanding of policy making and to assist you in making a significant impact in public service.
