Politics and International Studies

Undergraduate study


We are proud of our reputation for helping students to develop the skills and knowledge they need to secure diverse and exciting jobs.

We design our programmes to ensure that they provide all students with the knowledge they need to develop an expertise in their chosen field, but also the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive market place. On our degrees, you will not only learn about politics or international relations or history. You will learn essential transferable skills that you can carry with you into the world of work.
