William Murray-Uren

William Murray-Uren is a 25-year-old Scot hailing from Edinburgh and studying at Leiden University. “I am currently typing this in a little bedroom in the Netherlands as I recently embarked on an MSc in Political Science at the University of Leiden. In 2014, I completed my bachelor’s degree in International Relations at the University of Leeds before moving to London to cut my teeth in the professional world. I spent two years in the City, working for a financial PR firm, before moving back to Scotland to concentrate on less corporate endeavours.”

“Like a lot of Brits I believe wholeheartedly in the country’s National Health Service. This led to me spending the next year working with the Director of the Institute of Health and Society based at Newcastle University, researching the current ill-thought-out privatisation plan, which without pushback, could lead to the system’s demise. The work I was doing last year spurred me to get back into academia and has taken me to where I am now!”
