It has been an important year for our School, as we welcomed students from two new programmes – our new BSc in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and our new MPA in Public Administration and Management. We are also welcoming our second cohort of Executive MPA students this January, coming straight from their first term at NYU Wagner so as ever, it is exciting and changing times at the School of Public Policy.

As I return to the Department, from a sabbatical at the European University Institute in Florence, I am struck by how much continues to evolve at the School of Public Policy. So much of this change is exciting and 2015/16 is going to be a special year for the Department with the launch of the new BSc in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, our first undergraduate degree and also the first cohort joining us on the Master in Public Administration (MPA) programme for experienced policy-makers.

It has been a busy and productive spring term. As cherry trees blossom in Tavistock Square, masters students heads turn to dissertation proposal forms. Undergraduate affiliate students will be thinking about essays and how to make the most of the time in London that remains and academic staff will see a window opening for research projects.
