Course Summary:
UEL has a well-established reputation for teaching politics in a way that combines academic excellence with the chance to develop your practical skills. Our Politics and International Relations course reflects the changing nature of global affairs and the growing interdependence of nation states. You'll be learning with students from all over the world about key international institutions, and you'll gain a broad knowledge of regional politics in Europe, the USA, South America and China. Using this knowledge, you'll start to make sense of global change beyond the daily headlines. We'll encourage you to take advantage of our location so close to Westminster, the political centre of the country, as well as our extensive links with a range of political and civic organisations – from trade unions to campaign groups – to launch your own career in politics. Your tutors will provide you with invaluable placement experience as part of our flourishing internship programme. You'll acquire key organising and campaign skills on the frontline.

When they say East, they mean pretty far east! The campus and accommodation are located right on the Thames in Beckton, and traveling into Central via the DLR offers a nice scenic route into London. The teaching was great, too – my tutors really cared, and were devoted to the local area which was great in my first year when I wasn’t too sure about living in London.
