Program description

Politics (Including Foundation Year) BA (Hons) (Full-time)

Our Politics (including foundation year) BA degree is designed for those who are passionate about the study of politics but don’t hold the necessary entry requirements to enter the standard three-year undergraduate degree or have been out of education for a while.

During your foundation year you’ll gain the necessary skills for academic study, such as essay writing and research, before moving on to a more in-depth study of politics in the following three years. Once you complete your foundation year you’ll be able to specialise in subjects such as international relations, diplomacy or international conflict.
