Through a practical, interdisciplinary approach, we strive to improve the craft of governing. Every part of our curriculum is co-created by world-leading academics and expert practitioners to equip students with the research insights, analytical skills and practical applications needed to advance careers. We spark and lead the conversation through a thought-provoking curriculum.   

We upskill and equip students with the tools to create, implement and evaluate policies that support communities locally, nationally, and globally. Citizen-centred policymaking is at the forefront of what we do in the ISfG; our modern approach to education allows space to converse, discuss and develop with diverse like-minded individuals. Because if we challenge, engage, and evolve the way we view governance, we can empower our students to design, deliver and evaluate policies that will shape a better future.
