European Politics KCL Watch
Please, could someone (current student) tell me more about European Politics BA? I got uncon offer for this course, however I am not sure how good this course is, it´s been open since 2013.. Is the course competitive? Can we chose modules from different dept (International Relations etc)? Is there any option to study abroad for a semester?
Really important for me, thank you!!

We can chose modules from different departments, including philosophy and war studies department s. In the firs year, we will have to take 30 credits from different European countries (or something like that). There is the opportunity with European studies to travel abroad, but I do not recall there being this opportunity with European politics. I do not know whether it is competitive, but the department have been rated 1st in terms of research this year, and Kings is 11th in the UK for politics on certain league tables. The course aims to give an in depth understanding of the way that politics works in other countries; acting as a foundation to either further studies or work in politics. The person above me mentioned correctly, that it is useful for working with the EU, however this is not the only area in which the knowledge gained from the degree would be beneficial. Banks, large corporations, charities and other NGOs also work with international relations.
I chose this course for the above reasons, and am bias towards it because I really did like the sound of it. I am interested in further study, and although some may call it "farcical", I am optimistic about the opportunities it will offer me Hope I helped in any way!
I love the sound of this course however I don't want to be rejected.
