  • Due to the importance of the meeting, attendance is compulsory for all those on our PAIS administered degrees (Politics; Politics and International Studies; Politics and Sociology; Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods; and Politics and a Modern Language - French, German, Italian and Hispanic studies). An attendance sheet will be distributed on the day for everyone to sign.

  • The welcome meeting will be followed by an exciting Question Time event. Full details available here
  • Please note: there are no other PAIS lectures or PAIS seminars on the Monday of week 1. All you need to attend is our welcome meeting.

PAIS Social Events

  • PAIS hold a number of social events and activities throughout the year. We will be in touch with more details about these. These are a great opportunity to meet and get to know other PAIS students and to talk to academic and administrative staff from the Department in an informal environment.
