I'm starting an MA at Aber next month - Critical International Politics (Research) to be specific, but would be keen to hear from anyone else who's doing anything in the Interpol department. What are your impressions of the town and department? What sort of backgrounds are you coming from?
For my part, I'm 24, graduated from University of Bristol in Politics in 2013, and since then have been living and working in Bristol having done a variety of jobs and spending a bit of time abroad. Not sure how many applicants will be 'mature' students or how many are fresh out of undergrad study.
I've visited Aber a couple of times in 2010 and 2015 for UG and PG open days respectively - it's a really nice little place, but I'm feeling pretty apprehensive about going from a large city to a pretty tiny town. Anyone else in the same boat?
Really excited about the department and my course so far, there's some serious quality knocking about in Interpol and it seems like a close, collegiate environment for study and getting involved with cutting edge research.
Looking forward to meeting y'all, at any rate.
Half of the top 10 aren't even RG...
