Students in a Birkbeck Politics undergraduate class, Parliamentary Studies, have given evidence to an inquiry by the Commons education select committee on value for money in higher education.

The evidence has been published on the House of Commons website.

The committee has invited written submissions on a range of issues in higher education, including graduate outcomes, social justice and teaching quality, and has also launched an online survey for current students.

Parliamentary Studies is an option module in the Department of Politics that aims to give students a better understanding of how legislatures work and their role within modern political systems.

Birkbeck is one of only a small number of universities able to teach the module, which is delivered by Birkbeck lecturers as well as parliamentary officials.

The Parliamentary Studies module is available as an option module to students on our BA Politics, BA Global Politics and International Relations and BA Politics, Philosophy and History programmes.

In 2017 the module is taught by Dr Ben Worthy and Professor Sarah Childs.
