The course

Our Politics degree will enable you to engage critically with the political world, and to explore theoretical and empirical approaches to political ideas and issues. You will learn to understand political systems and confront the politics of our everyday lives through core teaching and via exciting additional learning opportunities, such as our guest lecture series and the PAIS Film Club.

Areas of study include political theory, comparative politics and political systems, as well as international relations, international security, international political economy, and international development. Political theory and comparative politics provide the core course content, but you can choose options across the full range of Politics and International Studies modules, such as the Politics of Contemporary China or Power and Resistance in World Politics. You could also study a language as part of your degree, take advantage of our many internship opportunities, or study abroad in Europe, North America, Asia or Australia. You will gain key skills in a wide range of investigative, analytical and communicative research as well as presentation skills acquired through independent and collaborative study.

Additional fee information

In line with government policy decisions, Home and EU undergraduate tuition fees for the 2020/21 academic year are £9,250. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. Fees for Channel Islands students are linked to the Home fee as well as the Office for Students annual funding levels and are therefore subject to change in line with the above statement as well as the annual funding award for the year of study. The University has set the International fees for the period to 2021-22.
