Course summary

The Foundation Year in Law and Social Sciences is offered as an entry route to a law, politics, criminology or sociology degree for students who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study. You enrol on a four-year course, which includes the one-year foundation course. If you complete this year successfully you progress directly onto one of our three-year degree courses in these subject areas. The number of students who progress to degree study are very high - in fact some of these students have gone on to become some of our most successful graduates.

Overview

Our course will give you a broad understanding of economics, international political systems, and international law while enabling you to carefully consider the ever-evolving international context for maximum relevance.

You’ll learn the different international legal, political, and economic perspectives to enhance your critical and analytical ability, and develop your policy analysis skills.

You’ll also get plenty of support from teaching staff who are actively engaged in research on human rights, gender, and environmental issues. Many of our academics have used their research to influence on-going policy processes, including the United Nations international frameworks.

How is the BA International Politics, Economics and Law taught?

You will further your knowledge through lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials, and supplement the classes with your own independent study and directed reading in your own time. You will work on weekly assignments, practical exercises and presentations.

Assessment

You will be assessed through a variety of means, including exams, essays, critical reviews and presentations, and your work placement. When you submit your coursework we will be looking, among other things, at your understanding of theory and practice and your ability to sustain a coherent and reasoned argument.

Careers

Students graduating with this degree may go on to work for diplomatic missions, embassies, the Foreign Office, human rights advocacy centres or conduct regional economic analysis.
