Program Overview

Understand the roles of democracy, freedom and security in the 21st century near the site of the 2021 G7 Summit. Our programme is not just about helping you understand politics and international relations; it's about building your critical thinking to empower you to be part of a change. Hone your skills with our unique practical assessments that immerse you in mock-ups of real-world scenarios. Our students have gone on to key policy and political roles locally and nationally.

Key Features

  • We’re very proud of our National Student Survey (NSS) 2019 return showing that 100% of our students agree that the course is intellectually stimulating.*
  • Focus on the diversity of the international world, in particular, post-1945 developments and the processes of globalisation. These twin themes will be reflected and addressed in sessions on the international political economy, international security and the third world.
  • Explore the evolution of politics internationally. Debate contemporary worldwide issues, current affairs and major political events. Ask those difficult questions about war, hunger and poverty in the developing world. 
  • Travel the world through our international student exchange programme. From the Czech Republic and Poland to Canada and the USA, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to gain insights into international relations worldwide. 
  • Be inspired by teaching rooted in research. Our staff are leading experts in their fields; areas of expertise include a popular protest in the Middle East, British and American foreign policy, development in Africa, global environmental politics, security studies and the politics of the European Union.
  • Engage with contemporary international issues and take part in exclusive events, film screenings and lectures, through the student-run Politics and International Affairs society (PIA Soc). 
  • Benefit from a course which received excellent ratings for teaching and student satisfaction, in the Guardian’s University Guide 2015 (within the subject league table for Politics). 
  • Differentiate yourself in an international sector with industry experience. As journalists, politicians' assistants, and public affairs consultants, our graduates have gone on to work for the European Union, United Nations and UK Civil Service. 
  • Investigate daily headlines. Discover the international and political ideas that influence society. Emphasise the diversity of the international world where traditional approaches will be measured against new ways of looking at how the world works.
