What were you doing prior to starting the STEaPP MPA?

I was at Cardiff University studying politics and International Relations. 

Why did you choose to study at STEaPP?

Madeline Carr, one of the professors now at UCL STEaPP, moved from Cardiff University to UCL to start this program. I always enjoyed her classes, so I joined!

What was your favourite aspect of the MPA?

The people and the professors, the best people you will ever meet.

How has the STEaPP MPA shaped your experiences since leaving UCL?

I have been able to apply everything I learnt at UCL, it was all practical and real-world knowledge, something other degrees simply don't offer.

What is the one piece of advice you would give to future candidates? 

Ask for help when you need it. STEaPP is a great support system if you let it be.
