Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Economics, Politics and Public Policy (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. How big should the state be? And what should it seek to do? Learn how and why politics always has an economic dimension, and why economics is, in its turn, always political. You'll study the most important concepts and ideas in economics, and explore how these concepts lead to a specific set of real'world debates and problems. The Department provides a lively interdisciplinary environment, specialising in the study of cultures and conflicts in a way that crosses boundaries between disciplines. You won't simply learn about economics and politics in terms of what happens in conventional arenas of power, but also what happens on the streets, in art galleries, and in the non'Western world. We'll defamiliarise you from what you think you already know, and encourage you to look at the subjects from a different perspective. We have a lively events programme that attracts renowned speakers, meaning that you'll have the opportunity to hear the latest political arguments, theories and ideas. The Department of Politics has links with the Home Office, Department for Transport, local government and the European Commission.
