Course summary

If you want to study politics at a British university but don’t have the correct qualifications, our four-year BA Politics and International Relations with International Foundation Year programme enables you to undertake an undergraduate politics and international relations degree.You will complete a foundation year (called Year 0) before progressing onto our three-year BA Politics and International Relations degree. This means you can apply for a single four-year visa that covers the whole duration of your studies.The foundation year is designed to equip you with the subject-specific and general study skills needed to cope with the demands of undergraduate study. Our high-quality teaching is geared towards the needs of students from a wide range of educational backgrounds.**Careers** Through this course you will develop strong analytical and research skills, as well as become experienced in delivering presentations and working in a group. These skills are valued by employers in many industries, giving you the option of roles that are directly related to your degree or in completely different fields. Our combination of skills development, placements and practical modules has meant that 94% of graduates from the Department of Politics and International Relations are in work or further study six months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DHLE) survey, 2016/17).Past students have put their political analysis skills to direct use in the British and European civil services, political research units, think tanks, non-governmental organisations and journalism. Others have gone into advertising, retail, management consultancy, media and banking.
