Public policy student sings praises of exchange


Nicole Battle is a social planner for local government in Melbourne and a student in the Melbourne School of Government’s Master of Public Policy and Management (MPPM).

She recently travelled to the University of Birmingham with other students as part of their MPPM, as well as Associate Professor Helen Dickinson and Dr Scott Brenton. They participated in sessions on Britain’s local government and National Health Service (NHS), particularly recent innovations in service integration and personalised care.

So impressed with the sessions they attended, Nicole wrote a blog about her experience, explaining how it provided a rich environment for considering comparisons with public policy challenges in Australia, and gave her fresh perspective on her work.
