Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Sociology and Politics (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 degree gives you a thorough grounding in sociology and politics, in methods of social and political research, and in interdisciplinary approaches to political analysis. You'll be taught in one of the UK's top sociology departments; in the most recent official assessment we achieved joint first ranking for the world'class quality of our research. Our academics are responsible for actively shaping the discipline ' they're pioneers in their fields, and write the books that are on your reading lists. Sociology at Goldsmiths achieved a high score of 91% and Politics 92% for the overall quality of our teaching in the 2014 National Student Survey (NSS). We have links with the Home Office, Department for Transport, local government and the European Commission. You won't simply learn about politics in terms of what happens in the Houses of Parliament and conventional arenas of power, but also what happens on the streets, in art galleries, and in the non'Western world.
