International Politics focuses on addressing global challenges. The degree in International Politics offers students the opportunity to study the concepts, practices, policies, histories and regions that make up international politics as a discipline and to explore the ways in which, all these factors are undergoing radical transformation in the twenty-first century. During the duration of this course, students can participate in the renowned ‘Crisis Games’; a three day role playing exercise in political, economic and diplomatic manoeuvre, developing negotiation and communication, critical thinking, team work, and problem-solving skills. The Department of International Politics operates a prestigious Parliamentary Placement Scheme, enabling students to gain valuable experience working alongside an MP (House of Commons, Westminster) or an AM (Welsh Assembly, Cardiff) for a period of 4-6 weeks during the summer. During this time, students will write reports and speeches, undertake research projects, and respond to constituency issues. The Department also has an International Student Exchange Programme based on close links with carefully selected universities in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia. The Department is also home to Interstate, the oldest student-run international politics journal in the United Kingdom, enabling students to publish their work or gain valuable experience working as part of the editorial team.
