Five Reasons to Study Politics and International Relations

Here are five very good reasons to study Politics or International Relations at Canterbury Christ Church University. 

1) Our team

You will have direct and regular contact with full-time staff that not only maintain high standards in their teaching, but are also experts in their respective research fields. Our students recognise this by consistently nominating their teaching team for teaching awards. 

2) Innovative learning and teaching

Using innovative teaching methods, we bring the outside world into our programmes, with role-plays, interactive learning via webinars and other platforms, as well as taking students out into the wider world on UK and EU study trips. 

3) Vibrant learning environment

Teaching informed by research ensures our lectures focus on the most up-to-date content and current thinking. This is reinforced by our established ‘Making Politics Matter’ series which attracts high-profile guest speakers. 

4) Concentrating on individual development

Our courses offer a choice of modules to suit your interests and your personal tutor will offer support at every stage of your degree. So, if you are interested in British politics, the EU or International Politics, you will be able to choose the modules that shape your own personal development. 

5) Focus on employability

You can build up your CV with us by developing relevant skills and experience that are transferable to the workplace. You will engage with practitioners from UK and international organisations including Parliament and the EU institutions. We provide support for you to develop and enhance analytical and communication skills in all our degree programmes.
