You will study three core courses: two courses in political communication and one in methodology; as well as three optional courses chosen from a range in politics and other selected courses offered at the University.
You will also write a dissertation on a political communication topic of your choice, under the guidance of personal supervision by a specialist member of staff.
You will attend lectures, seminars and tutorials and take part in project work and case studies.
You may also choose, with the programme convener's approval, from courses in the other subject areas in the School of Social & Political Sciences. Some courses might not be available every year.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
The minimum entry requirements are an honours degree at the 2.1/upper second class level or higher or equivalent (e.g. B/3.0 GPA in the undergraduate degree) in politics, law or related social science subject.
We will consider applications from graduates from other fields, but the applicant should submit a statement indicating why they are interested in changing fields or the connection to their previous study. We will also take relevant work experience into account.
International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.
For applicants whose first language is not English, the University sets a minimum English Language proficiency level.
