Why choose this course?

Studying for a Politics degree will help you to answer important questions about how conflict between different interest groups and states is resolved; how resources and power are distributed in society; how decisions are made; and why political systems develop in the ways that they do. You will study concepts, values and institutions, and explore the relationship between political theory and practice. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development. Our graduates go on to work in a range of sectors, including the Civil Service, politics, NGOs, international and EU organisations, think-tanks, policy-making teams, teaching and research.

We take full advantage of our location in the heart of London, using our links with the Houses of Parliament and other centres of power and policy-making. We regularly invite high-profile speakers to our central London location for our well-established series of seminars, public lectures and conferences to which you, as a student of Politics, would be invited.
