This programme, recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) under its 1+3 system (Masters plus PhD) for funding postgraduate studies, focuses on the development of the skills necessary to undertake research in the social sciences in general, and politics in particular.
You take compulsory modules then undertake a research project culminating in a 12,000-word dissertation.
Teaching and learning take place in workshops and practical classes, lectures, seminars, team-based problem-solving groups and in supervisory meetings for research papers and the dissertation.

An upper-second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in international studies/politics or a related discipline. We may also consider applicants on an individual basis with relevant professional experience.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5, Pearson's PTE Academic Test 62 or equivalent.
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.
