University of Dundee has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
At Dundee we have a particular focus on European politics and more generally, on the politics of security. However, the modules we offer cross the entire range of politics and international relations as a field of study. The MA degrees we offer include Politics, International Relations, European Politics and Geopolitics, which can be tailored to suit your particular areas of interest.We believe strongly in integrating our ground breaking research with our teaching, and in areas such as Russian politics, politics of the Middle East or international security you will benefit from being taught by a leading expert and author in that field.
We regularly host speakers from the world of Scottish, British and international politics, including MPs and MSPs, American Foreign Service Officers and Government Ambassadors. Additionally, where possible, we encourage and assist students who wish to take up internships with the Scottish Parliament and Government and other bodies.
