Support the MPP

Our activities in public policy depend on active links to governments, NGOs and industry to provide workplacements and to fundraise for our bursary scheme. Please see below for how to provide such support to the Cambridge MPP.

MPP Workplacements

An integral part of the MPP for our students is a workplacement with either a government department, an NGO or a company. Students work with their organisation for 14 weeks, 4 weeks onsite developing the issue to be addressed followed by 10 weeks in Cambridge to complete a policy analysis and recommendation paper for the organisation. Students are onsite during the Easter period (mid March to late April) and complete their report by the end of June.

If you would like further information on the workplacement process and would be interested in providing a placement please contact Dr Finbarr Livesey (

A list of organisations who are providing placements in the inaugural year of the MPP can be found here.

MPP Bursaries

In order to be able to support the best students regardless of their financial background and to ensure that our graduates are able to continue to work in the public sector we aim to provide as much financial support as we can for the MPP class. To achieve this we are seeking support for bursaries, £30,000 per student, to cover tuition and college fees. We are also seeking part-bursaries to supplement other funding students may have been able to access in support of their studies.

For further details on providing bursaries please contact Dr Finbarr Livesey ( in the first instance.
