Undergraduate study

As our teaching is inspired by our research, you’ll benefit from direct access to the latest thinking. Teaching comprises interactive lectures, small group seminars, visiting practitioners, field trips, simulations, and engagement with local issues and communities. You’ll also acquire research skills valued by employers and will have the opportunity to apply them in a consultancy role for an external organisation. As well as traditional academic essays, we use career-relevant assessments including portfolios, reports, video, online communications and presentations. You'll benefit from a bespoke learning experience with intentionally low student-staff ratios and an unrivalled commitment to excellence in teaching.

'The module options have definitely been a highlight for me. Being taught key issues in contemporary Politics from leading researchers in the field means that the lectures are always filled with exciting, up to date information and debates. The lecturers also tend to include unconventional assessment methods which I incredibly enjoy, such as writing a Foreign Policy recommendation to Donald Trump, or being part of a simulated peace process.'
