A reputation for excellent teaching, highly rated research and outstanding levels of student satisfaction

Our Political, Social and International Studies courses offer students a broad range of options and opportunities – from politics to international relations, media and popular culture to public policy and management, and beyond.

We received a teaching satisfaction and overall satisfaction score of over 90 per cent for Politics in all English Mainstream universities (2014 National Student Survey and 2016 Guardian University Guide).

70% of research in Politics and International Relations was rated 4* (world leading) or 3* (internationally excellent) according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), a major Government analysis of university research quality.

Our students benefit from an excellent research programme, regular guest speaker seminars and a range of exciting internship opportunities to build experience and employability.
