Work With Us


Policy Scotland helps make connections between policy makers and practitioners and researchers at the University of Glasgow. Many of our current projects involve collaboration between users and academics over the design and implementation planning of new research.

In those policy-related fields where the University has an established reputation for excellence or where investment in staff has generated the capacity for delivering excellent research, we are keen to identify new opportunities for collaborative projects.  Current and potential users of research who want to discuss the possibility of working with us on a new collaborative project please contact Des McNulty.

Consultancy and Knowledge Exchange

Policy Scotland has well-developed links with central and local government, the health service, NDPB and voluntary sector bodies, businesses and other organisations in the public and social policy spheres, not just in Scotland and the UK, but around the world. We help policy makers access the research most relevant to their needs and build collaboration between users and those with the specialist knowledge to help them.

We have the capacity to work with a variety of partners and in different jurisdictions, assisting users with developing policies, strategies and practices in the light of emerging research findings and theoretical developments. For more information, please contact Des McNulty

Study with Us

University of Glasgow offers a wide range of courses in the social and political sciences, ranging from economics and law to management sociology, politics and urban studies. Some of these are traditional taught academic undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, some involve research leading to a postgraduate degree and some are standalone CPD (continuous professional development) options.

University of Glasgow is always interested in developing new courses or options which enhance our provision and support our goals, so if you have an interest in commissioning or partnering us in such developments, please contact Des McNulty.
