Students discuss contemporary issues

09 August 2013

Three Masters’ students from the International Politics’ Welsh Politics and Society Masters programme will be on the Aberystwyth University stand at the Eisteddfod today to share their research findings and experiences at midday, Friday 9th August.

The projects, funded through the Access to Masters Scheme in cooperation with local businesses – FBA, Golwg360 and UCAC, will touch on current issues which are of importance to Wales.

Osian Elias will discuss pay and conditions within the education system in Wales as well as creating policies across borders (UCAC). Fflur Jones will explore how have efforts to lobby on public policy in Wales developed in the wake of devolution (FBA), and Dafydd Morgan will look at surveys in the media in Wales (Golwg360).

Dr Elin Royles from the Institute of Welsh Politics at the University will chair the discussion.

There will be an opportunity to ask all three questions about their experiences as International Politics Masters students and a chance to enjoy some light refreshments.
