In your second year: Old Powers, New Powers: Imperialism, Colonialism & the Modern State (30 credits) and The European Union in the World (30 credits) and Modern Philosophy (Advanced) (30 credits) and Economic Development (30 credits).

The Philosophy, Politics & Economics programme, with Politics as your major, consists of two courses in Politics and one course in each of Philosophy and Economics in each year of study.

Additional entry requirements

Interviews take the form of a “taster” tutorial, which enables us to assess if you would flourish in the tutorial system and for you to ascertain whether you enjoy this method of teaching. Most students find this taster tutorial to be very enjoyable and a great opportunity to discuss a subject you are passionate about with a university lecturer.
