Course summary

This exciting, modern degree in politics can provide you with exactly that. Delivered by experienced, expert and enthusiastic academics, it combines political theory, political science, political economy, area studies and international relations to provide an in-depth study of contemporary politics.

Your learning experience needn’t stop at observing and studying, however. Our voluntary placement scheme offers opportunities that have seen former students working in Parliament and the MPs’ constituency offices – seeing politics from the inside, and providing a great basis for a potential future.

Employability

You’ll be studying in the heart of London, surrounded by the politicians, policy-makers and legislative bodies that define British politics. The work placements available can help you to build your own network of contacts if you’re looking to work at various levels of government, including opportunities within foreign ministries and national UN delegations.

The skills and knowledge you’ll gain on the degree are also highly transferrable and can help you move into such as teaching, the media, social work, administration, youth and community work, business, education, and psychology.

Placements

A Politics placement can not only help you place your studies into a context and apply your learning to practice, it's also a great opportunity to contribute to real world situations. Many former students have maintained a relationship with their placement organisation, and some have used it as the basis for their dissertation.
