Lancaster University has recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion wishes to revitalise Politics/International Relations by bringing together the 35 finest young political minds (Year 12, 16 -17 year olds) to build towards the next 50 years of the University's life and the next half century of UK Politics.
In this unique event, successful applicants will work with Politics/IR academic staff and the Richardson Institute, the UK's oldest Peace and Conflict Research Centre, over three days to produce a series of reports on the future of Britain as seen through the eyes of people entering into the world of politics.
Students will stay on campus in Lancaster University's award winning accommodation and will experience a range of evening activities run by Lancaster University's Student Ambassadors.
Places at the event will be determined by completion of the application form below, in which the best entrants will be invited. While all Year 12 A Level students can enter, places will be reserved for students from Widening Participation (WP) backgrounds.
