I am currently pursuing an MSc in Comparative Social Policy. I did my undergraduate degree in Psychology at University College London, where I became interested in how psychological research can be used to inform social policies to benefit populations of people. In my various volunteering experiences, such as with an after-school care centre and at my local constituency's Meet-the-People sessions where residents would seek help from the MP, I became interested in inequality and social mobility in society. For my thesis, I am aiming to explore policy-level solutions to tackle inequality and social mobility via education. I hope that this MSc course will equip me with the skills needed to be competent in policy-related work, which I aim to engage in after graduation. The comparative aspect of the course was the key appeal to me, as I firmly believe that there are always lessons to be learnt from other countries and cultures.
