Social Science and Public Policy

Richard Freeman

The practice programme

Practice workshops bring together visiting practitioners and postgraduate students to discuss aspects of professional and organizational practice. They serve to open new areas of research and reflective inquiry, as well as to develop transferable skills. Meanwhile, our research training workshops address related issues of impact and user engagement.

Work-based placements are available to doctoral students as well as many on our taught MSc programmes, promoting an immediate relationship between policy, practice and postgraduate research. Students funded through our Principal's Career Development Scheme draw on their own professional experience in developing new opportunities for practice-based teaching and learning.

The practice programme is led by a dedicated Deputy Director of the Graduate School (Postgraduate Practice) and a Placements Coordinator, and supported by intra-institutional collaboration with the Institute for Academic Development, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences' Knowledge Exchange team, the Public Policy Network and the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science.
