Whether you want to enhance your career opportunities or continue on to a research degree, a Masters degree can help you stand out. Our postgraduate degrees allow you to deepen your knowledge of a subject, specialise in a particular area or take a new direction.

As a postgraduate student within the School of Politics and International Studies, you will join a community of experts who are as passionate about your subject as you are. Our academics will challenge you and encourage you to explore, question and discover at every stage of your studies.

Our learning and teaching approach will allow you to succeed whilst offering you a range of opportunities to broaden your studies according to your interests and aspirations. Throughout your time with us, you will also be able to take advantage of our excellent study facilities, personal development opportunities, professional support and more.

You’ll develop transferable skills such as critical thinking, team working and project management, as well as advanced research skills through your dissertation or final project. You’ll also have access to ongoing career and development support.

Our graduates have gone on to have careers in politics, the Civil Service, the media, non-governmental organisations and international organisations such as the UN and World Bank, as well as roles in the private sector.
