Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Politics, Philosophy and Economics (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. This challenging and ground'breaking degree introduces you to core ideas and issues in politics, philosophy and economics. It will equip you to understand how the economy is governed, how public policy gets made and the ideas which shape the world. The combination of Politics Philosophy and Economics (PPE) is well established, thanks largely to the degree offered at Oxford University. Goldsmiths now offers a distinctive, fresh and critical take on these areas of study, which draws on its well'established strengths in social science and theory. You will be taught by highly engaged lecturers, working across politics, philosophy and economics, all of whom are active researchers and writers in their own field. We've been recognised as one of the UK's top political universities as voted for by students (Which? University 2014). In addition to the taught curriculum, you will have the opportunity to attend talks by leading scholars and public intellectuals, concerned with the questions of politics, philosophy and economics. You will have the chance to hear from practitioners, experts and policy'makers, who will give special guest lectures which are available to our PPE students.
