Just seven weeks ago the MPhil in Public Policy at the University of Cambridge was launched. It is wonderful to have the course up and running and our first 23 students have been wrestling with public policy writ large, as well as getting to grips with the beast that is the University! Thankfully everyone is doing well and has made it through the first term, with a break and a set of essays to look forward to over the holidays. Just enough time to recharge before coming back to an even busier term than that just past.
Over the coming months we will be trying to give a flavour of life on the MPP, the background to the programme, and where possible some pieces on specific policy issues and areas. We hope that this will provide a window into our growing programme and also provide a platform for our students to present their work and thoughts on public policy issues of the day.
