The Parliamentary Studies module examines the workings of the UK Parliament and the legislative processes in the context of the British party system and political culture, and the broader system of multi-level parliamentary government in the UK, including relationships with European institutions and devolved legislatures in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This module is suitable for non-specialist students interested in British politics. It does not have pre-requisites nor assumes prior knowledge and skills in this subject area. It is, however, specifically focused on the UK Parliament, and would not be the best fit for those on interdisciplinary pathways.
