    Subject: Politics and Parliamentary Studies

    Offer: AAB

    Why Leeds?: I'm a city girl! The course is INSANE, I fell in love with the campus when I visited. And I just got the gut feeling it was the right place for me

    Accommodation: I'm really fancying the look of the new Central Village! I need close to campus because I'm a lazy bugger and I'm a little princess too so I think ensuite is necessary :P

    I have to agree, if I could have my time again I'd have loved to do PPS, I had a few friends that did it and I was super jealous of them going to Washington and Westminster for a year. I don't think I've seen a more exciting course in any subject at any uni.

    Leeds is really good for its British politics modules, even if you aren't a politics student they are great to do as electives for learning about modern British history, its great to be able to list all the PMs since the war and be able to talk a bit about their characters and what they did.

    This was great to hear, really encouraging Definitely! I can't believe more unis don't offer the same thing!

    That's good! I LOVE British politics - it's been my favourite part of the A Level course so far. I'm SO excited 8D

    Glad to hear it, a book you might be interested in is Peter Hennessy's "Prime Minister: The Office and its Holders since 1945". This is a superb book, its written for the general reader as well as students, its also the core text for the excellent British Prime Ministers module. I learned loads about British PMs from that book, it has a chapter on each PM and some extra chapters about general stuff.

    Have you ever seen the British Prime Ministers rankings stuff, this was some work done at Leeds by Kevin Theakston who I believe is now head of POLIS. It has had some newspaper coverage and been debated on some forums.

    This was the original paper with the rankings:

    That's great! Clarence Dock seems like a good accommodation, I still haven't applied for any of the accommodations. But hopefully going to make my mind up.

    Clarence dock seems very good but I don't blame you, I am confused too as to what accommodation is best for me.

    How much do you want en suite? Thats the main thing CD has going for it over Lupton, although I like both halls (I lived in Lupton).

    If you aren't that bothered about en suite, and don't want to pay the extra money CD costs, then Lupton is better on most other counts, particularly location (its the best location of all the halls IMO), you're right in the middle of the best part of Headingley.
