What our postgraduate researchers say...

"The department has leading international experts in every conceivable area of politics, from domestic and international political theory and international security, to internationally renowned specialists on British, US, Middle Eastern, East Asian, African, West and East European, and Central Asian politics. The nature of the expertise in the department - with established political theorists and country specialists - makes research at POLIS much more interdisciplinary and broader in scope than is arguably the case at many other universities." Dr Tim Page, Redefining state roles and identities amongst post-cold war security

"The University of Leeds is unique. It offers an atmosphere for direct critical engagement with your own assumptions about yourself as researcher, to challenge your views and to consider all possible interpretations of your observations as researcher. Finding a job after my studies was not the key issue for me; the problem was which job to accept. I think employers understand the value of a research degree from Leeds."  Dr Gabriel Botchwey, PhD Politics and Development
