In the first year, core modules focus on the British government in relation to politics and international relations, introducing the key concepts that underpin both disciplines.

In the second and third years, students can build on this foundation and develop further knowledge of both subjects through core modules on topics such as British political parties, politics and international relations theory, and global governance.

On the Model United Nations module, students consider international diplomacy and practise negotiating skills in a simulated United Nations General Assembly. They are able to conduct in-depth analysis of the institutions of British government through modules like Parliamentary Studies, which is co-taught with the Houses of Parliament.
