Has anyone on this course tell me if it's worth applying for. I'm quite stuck between two courses in Kent.

What's the main differences between war & conflict and Politics & IR?

thanks!

Hi there,
Kent have a Unibuddy scheme where prospective students can talk to current students studying the same course. Here's the link; https://www.kent.ac.uk/unibuddy/
You should be able to talk to students on both the war and conflict course, and the politics and international relations course.
I hope that this helps

Hey, I do BA in War and Conflict and can answer your questions. Basically, both courses are taught by the School of Politics and IR, but compulsory modules are different. Politics & IR study political thought and civil politics in states, while War and Conflict focuses on conflict management and resolution strategies, negotiations, diplomacy, mediation, terrorism, torture, guerrilla warfare, etc. However, you can choose optional modules from both civil politics and war modules. In 3rd year you have no compulsory modules and if you choose to write a dissertation, you can write it on any political subject you like. Also, in 3rd year on both degree pathways you will be able to take specialised internship module, module in teaching and different advanced research modules, plenty to choose from.

I hope this answers your questions, but if not, feel free to ask me

How similar are the modules? Will some of the compulsory modules for War and Conflict be provided for Politics & IR students and vice versa? I'm contemplating on just apply for both courses at this rate

As I said above, you can take whatever modules you like from across the School of Politics and IR. The difference is only in modules that are compulsory. All the other modules could be taken as optional.
