International Politics (Paris) Queen Mary University of London

Undergraduate

Awarded by: Queen Mary, University of London

Immerse yourself in French culture and politics at the prestigious University of London Institute in Paris.
Taught in English by Queen Mary academics, our BA in International Politics focuses on the practical aspects of international politics in contemporary society while giving students a unique chance to live and study in the French capital.
You'll benefit from an intellectually stimulating degree that draws from both institutions’ distinctive academic strengths. The programme explores how state, non-state, governmental and non-governmental actors perform international politics on the world stage, and the theories and methods of understanding their actions. You'll carry out field work engaging with political actors, sites and practices, and share your learnings with your peers in a collaborative seminar.
Proficiency in French is not an entry requirement, but you’ll have the opportunity to learn the language by undertaking supplementary courses in French, or a Minor in French Studies – and gain a valuable transferable skill that will open doors to international career opportunities.

Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (first teaching from September 2016) Queen Mary University of London welcomes applications from students currently studying Level 3 BTEC qualifications and will consider you for entry to the majority of our undergraduate courses. The typical entry requirements will vary according to the course you are applying for.

Some of our courses require specific subject knowledge which you may not be able to cover as part of a Level 3 BTEC qualification and we may therefore require additional Level 3 qualifications to ensure that you are suitably prepared for relevant courses. A small number of our courses do not accept BTEC qualifications for entry, either as a standalone qualification, or in combination with other qualifications at Level 3.

Information on our typical entry requirements and guidance for applying can be found at http://www.qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/entry/btec/

If you are at all unsure about the acceptability of your BTEC qualification for entry, please contact the Admissions team for individual advice (admissions@qmul.ac.uk).
