    Title says it all really. I didn't get a chance to go the open day and I now need a fifth choice and I've been considering Bath, mainly due to the fact that I love the town and the Politics & IR course looks quite exciting. The only problem I have right now is the fact that it has a reputation for being a more engineering/science-based university? How is the Politics & International Relations course there if there is any previous applicants at TSR, any insight would be appreciated .

    I've never heard that! If the course is interesting go for it. You may also want to consider where grads end up and what sorts of research and links with the sector there are.

    Hi there!

    It is a common misconception that Bath is primarily a university for engineering and science, but it has a high quality Humanities & Social Sciences faculty. The faculty has some of the best teaching staff in the world, and there are constant achievements in each department.

    Here are some further details about the BSc (Hons) Politics and IR course, just to give you more of an idea about what you'll study. Also, here are the graduate destinations for 2016 from the department - I hope this helps!

    From a personal view, I have chosen Contemporary Politics of the Middle East as one of my optional units this semester, taught by the politics department. I have hugely enjoyed the course, and it is my understanding that most students find the units engaging.

    If you have any other questions about the faculty, I would be happy to answer them.
