Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods
is a unique and hugely enjoyable course unlike any other! As a current student I am being equipped with a huge range of knowledge and skills that will transfer into a wide range of jobs. Not only this, but there is so much support in terms of workshops being held on essay writing, drop in sessions with members of the department, and lots of useful feedback given on assessed work.
