MA International Relations & European Politics

During my course, my English language skills really improved and I made friends with many other students. If I had not taken this course, I would have found it very difficult to move on to my Master’s course.

Social and Cultural Programme

Your experience here in Bath and the UK is very important to us so we offer an integrated Social and Cultural Programme, with a dedicated Student Experience Officer, to help you settle in as quickly as possible.

We offer advice and support in every aspect of your life here including how you can benefit from the wide range of activities, sports, clubs and societies, such as our International Students Association, offered by the University.

The Social and Cultural Programme:

  • offers free excursions on Saturdays to areas of interest within the local area and outside of Bath
  • organises evening events to enable you to socialise with students across campus
  • provides you with opportunities to practise your conversational English with members of our team
  • is run by native English speakers who can answer your questions about life in Bath, the University and British culture.


On your first day you will be given a Computer Induction, by our staff, to familarise yourself with the various online platforms used here at the University. This induction will help to signpost where you can find online support and how to access the University email, Wifi, Virtual Learning Environment and Online Store.
