Please note: this course is now BA(Hons) Politics and International Relations.
What attracted you to the course?
I chose politics because the subject interested me and I wanted to broaden my horizons. My favourite part of the course has been the political philosophy element, which had been a subject I didn’t know about before I started my degree.
I have studied three different modules around this subject (one each year) and in these modules I have learnt the most and challenged what I believe in. One of the best things about the course is that there are not loads of students on it, so in each class there is always a familiar and friendly face which leads to a great community feel.
What's it like to be a student at UWE?
What are the advantages of studying your subject in Bristol?
Bristol is a great place to live because it is a very diverse city, my advice would be to explore as much as you can and look beyond Clifton as being the be all and end all of the city!
Instead of doing a dissertation, I did a 'Politics in the workplace' module and through this, I got involved in volunteering with the British Red Cross which has been brilliant and I would urge anyone to give volunteering a go!
