Parliamentary Studies module
Parliamentary Studies is a higher education module which is co-taught by tutors at a higher education institution and officials from UK Parliament. It is the only higher education module formally approved by UK Parliament.
How does the Parliamentary Studies Module work?
The module provides students with a detailed knowledge of how Parliament works in both theory and practice. It is delivered through a collaboration between the Houses of Parliament and a UK higher education institution; the institution provides academic and theoretical content, and Parliament provides practical teaching about the work, processes and business of Parliament.
The Speaker of the House of Commons, Rt Hon John Bercow MP said:
"There can be no better time to learn about politics - how parliament operates and to hear from the people who work there - than right now when the topic is on everyone's mind".
The Speaker of the House of Lords, Rt Hon the Lord Fowler said:
"The programme has already resulted in a significant increase in the teaching of parliamentary studies".
