BSc (Hons) Politics with International Relations

Charlotte Serres

Studying the Politics with International Relations programme at Bath was incredibly enriching. I had access to a wide variety of modules, including politics and international relations theory, as well as for example, European and American politics. I also had the opportunity to choose units from other departments, such as International Development or Marketing, while learning Russian as an option.

Not only is the course intellectually challenging and the 24/7 library facilities extremely practical, above all, the quality of the academic staff is outstanding. As a driven and curious student, I found that the professors in my department were very approachable, always ready to provide support and advice.

Being a job-market oriented university, the course was structured to allow me to develop and strengthen my transferable skills, especially in teamwork, and written and oral communication…these are features employers are extremely interested in. I have now received offers from Cambridge and Oxford universities to undertake a postgraduate degree.

I can confidently say that the Politics with International Relations course at the University of Bath was much more than I had expected. To those ambitious students out there and their parents; I would definitely recommend it!
