Politics

Do you have ideas about how the world should be run? What values should shape global politics? Should the future be defined by religion, capitalism or communism? Do human rights really matter? Are people equal and what does it mean to be free? These are questions of Politics and International Relations. If they interest you, then this is the degree for you. Our Politics degree programme offers you the opportunity to: • Choose a level 3 module The ‘National Assembly for Wales Internship’ (PO3000) which is open to International Relations students, available during semester one for up to twenty students. You will work for an AM at the National Assembly in Cardiff for one day per week for a semester. • Study a 'Parliamentary Studies" module which includes sessions with members of parliament and the House of Lords, visits to the Palace of Westminster. Staff from the Houses of Parliament will deliver some classes and will be available to act as informal project advisors if you decide to take the follow on Dissertation in parliamentary studies module. 91% of our graduates are employed within six months of graduating according to the latest DLHE 2015 figures. Our Employability Officer supports our students with information and advice which is backed up by the University’s Careers Service and Work Placement Team. All students have access to events, workshops and employer talks, including an annual conference for students in June to support final year students with the transition into the world of work. With this degree programme you have the option to study abroad for a semester as part of your degree. You can either choose to go East and study in Hong Kong, China or Singapore or West and study in North America or Canada. This Semester Abroad opportunity costs no additional tuition fees; this means that you have the chance to study at an overseas institution without having to pay any further fee on top of the tuition fee you are already paying. You will, however, have to pay for your flight costs, accommodation, living expenses and any additional expenditure.
