Students culminate their studies with the completion of two courses focused on the original research proposal and development of a 15,000-word dissertation.

In addition to the postgraduate courses, students of the MSc Global Politics are encouraged to audit the following two undergraduate courses Old Powers, New Powers, Colonialism, Imperialism & the Modern State and International Organisations.

Teaching

The MSc Global Politics will be delivered predominantly through seminars, of between three and ten people, and individual tutorials.

Part-time study

The Master’s programme can be taken part-time over two years. Part-time students attend the same classes as their full-time colleagues, taking 50% of the course load each academic year. The classes are not run separately in the evening for part-time students. Read more

While we try to make the part-time study as flexible as possible, our Master’s programmes are demanding and we advise students that, if they intend to work alongside the course, their work should be flexible.

Assessment

Students will write formative essays during the year, which will receive written tutor feedback. Read more

Summative assessment of the MSc Global Politics will be via essays undertaken by students throughout the academic year, in addition to their extended research proposal and dissertation of 15,000 words.

Timetables

Timetables are usually made available to students during Freshers’ Week. Teaching can be scheduled to take place during any day of the week. However, when possible, Wednesday afternoons are usually reserved for sports and cultural activities.
