Welcome from the Head of Department

Congratulations on your results and a very warm welcome to the Department of Politics.

There could hardly be a more exciting time to be starting, or continuing a university degree in politics. If you have chosen to take politics because you want to connect the academic study of the subject to the events currently unfolding in Britain, Europe and the world, then you have chosen well.

All our programmes, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level are directly informed by our research and scholarship and by the emphasis we place on engaging with politics in the 'real world'.  Politics staff at Liverpool are recognised as leading experts nationally and internationally and frequently appear in the media to analyse political events and place them in context.

All the information you need for Welcome Week is available here.  In addition, you should already have received an induction pack from the School.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. Our School Student Support Centre at 11 Abercromby Square is open 8.30 a.m. – 5.00 p.m., Monday – Friday, or you can email at hlcenq@liverpool.ac.uk

I very much look forward to welcoming you to the Department in person in September.

Professor Andrew Russell, Head of Department
