Holly Metcalf

I am currently studying for the one year MSc in Comparative Social Policy at University College (Univ), where I also completed my BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. Within my undergraduate studies in PPE I focussed on the politics branch, developing a particular interest in policy and political sociology. This academic background has influenced my areas of research interest within social policy, in welfare conditionality, public perceptions of benefit claimants, and support for the welfare state.  

Alongside my degree I hope to continue the volunteer work I started as an undergraduate with Univ's Access and Outreach programme, working to improve the diversity of Oxford's student body, as well as my work in the local community with the charity Riding for the Disabled.
