Abdou Kane

MSc Government, Policy and Politics

Abdou found that Birkbeck's evening study was perfect for him:

'I have long had an interest in Politics. I took advantage of the financial crisis and therefore being not as busy as usual to go back to school and finally be able to study politics.

'I chose Birkbeck because it is part of the University of London and the teaching is excellent. It is also very supportive of people studying part time while working full time. I have had the opportunity to read great political texts, texts that shaped how we live and are governed. I very much enjoyed the weekly seminars. Debating with fellow students was also great.

'Finishing the programme in two years will be my greatest achievement. It is not easy to work full time, have a young family and study for a Master's degree, but the teaching is organised around working people. If you are thinking about studying, just do it. It has exceeded by far my expectations.'
