MA Social Research student working at G7 summit
MA Social Research student Adam Coles is heading to the G7 Summit in Italy next week to work as a Policy Analyst as part of the University of Sheffield's Global Learning Opportunities in the Social Sciences scheme.
Adam will travel to Taormina in Italy along with other students and two academic members of staff from the Faculty of Social Sciences. Throughout the Summit, which takes place on 26th and 27th May, Adam and his colleagues will be working in the media centre. Over the course of the trip, Adam will be writing a blog of his experiences, writing a policy brief and providing a Twitter commentary of significant events at the summit.
Adam said: "I'm looking to test my skills in an environment outside of academia, and get experience of working a pressurised environment."
Adam graduated from the BA Sociology in 2016, and is currently studying the MA Social Research at the Sheffield Methods Institute at The University of Sheffield.
Global Learning Opportunities in the Social Sciences (GLOSS) aims to promote student engagement in global learning. The scheme provides students with unique opportunities to understand their courses in an international context, actively engage with international policy makers, stakeholders and partners, and be involved in international research undertaken within the Faculty of Social Sciences.
