Course summary

**Gain a unique head start in your political career through our Westminster placement scheme that is fully integrated within your degree.**For almost 40 years, our Politics degree has produced graduates who've gone on to put their political skills and knowledge into practice. They've pursued careers of public and political prominence at Westminster, in Whitehall, at the BBC and organisations around the world.- We operate an extensive Westminster placement learning opportunity that is fully integrated within your degree programme.- Spend time in your third year of your degree studying at one of our partner institutions across the globe, from USA to Hong Kong.- 92% of our students are in work or further study six months after graduating (UK domicile full-time first degree leavers; Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey for the academic year 2016/17, published by HESA 2018)- There are so many of our graduates at Westminster and Whitehall that they've become affectionately known as 'the Hull mafia'.Studying politics at Hull takes you to the heart of contemporary political debate. We'll encourage you to question conventional wisdom and your own preconceived ideas. And you'll graduate with the ability to operate as a political analyst, theorist, historian, or an actual politician or political activist.The foundation year is ideal to boost your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements.**Official Team GB partners**Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
