Curating a Policy School @ UCL + SOAS

  • Jess Gosling

BACKGROUND I wanted to bring my full-time job (working in DCMS) and my part-time PhD worlds together. BRIEF Curate a unique five-day series bringing the best of academia and policy in an informal context covering all things policymaking, how to enter the civil service, working in international policy and much more. The sessions seek to empower students to embrace policy-making skills, offer top tips on thinking about the future and core insights into policy. IDEA Working collaboratively across various UK Government departments, I created a five-part mini-series to support students at all levels at UCL and SOAS. All sessions were created to support interdisciplinary thinking and the transmission of ideas.
