Nottingham Trent University
This course offers you the opportunity to study politics at an advanced and specialised level, emphasising the interplay between the national, regional and global arenas. The underpinning theme of the course is participation; an issue that has, and looks likely to continue to be a key debate within political discourse. Throughout the course you will have the unique opportunity to explore this theme through combining academic research skills with a period of work-based learning - either through existing links you might have with an organisation / institution, or through links established throughout the course.
An undergraduate degree equivalent to a UK undergraduate Honours degree (minimum 2.2). Applicants without such qualifications will be considered on an individual basis but will be required to demonstrate how their experiences and knowledge would enable them to study this course at Masters Level in their personal statement.
