Global Environment, Politics and Society MSc

Put on your formalwear and join Warwick Politics Society for an evening of good food, good refreshments and good company of over 200 attendees. The University of Bristol is ranked fifth for research in the UK , with 94% of our research assessed as world-leading or internationally excellent. Places are limited and allocated on a continuous basis from October 2021 until all places are filled. See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.

  • We are a very active community and have ongoing projects such as the Pocket Politics Podcast and The PolSoc Paper.
  • There will be Supervised Rehearsals and Tutorials in which a tutor attends and observes your company, offers feedback on your work, consults you on your process and guides you in areas where you may have questions.
  • You will also undertake a supervised research dissertation, or may apply to complete a project-based report with an NGO, government department, political party or business over the spring and summer.
  • A first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours in political science or international relations, or in a related discipline such as economics, history, philosophy, sociology or law.

We also aim to improve the employability of our members by offering opportunities that make them more attractive to potential employers. In our weekly meetings, we hold informal debates, discussions, and quizzes on issues such as the environment, the economy, and international relations. Outside of meetings, we write articles weekly about issues that we are passionate about, hold fun, exciting, and inclusive socials, and attend interesting talks held by guest speakers. First and second year students taking modules offered by the Department of Politics and International Studies can be paired up with a second or third year student who did the same modules. If you have any questions about your course, module choices, or life at Warwick, they can be your go-to person.

The MPhil in Politics is taught by a group of scholars who specialise in all aspects of European politics, including European integration, comparative European government, Europe’s external relations and the political systems of individual European countries. We have far more exciting and informative events this year, but you’ll wait and see what we’ve got planned.

Staff + students

Applicants studying Foundation Year programmes in the UK are welcome to apply for this programme. Foundation programmes from other universities and further education providers in the UK are considered on a case-by-case basis. Whether or not we can consider a particular foundation year as suitable for study at King’s depends on the content of the syllabus and modules studied. In the past we have accepted foundation programmes from a number of other institutions. This cutting-edge degree uses sociology, anthropology and politics to consider religion’s role in domestic and global contexts. Based in London, a city full of different religious traditions and ideas, you’ll consider contemporary issues while seeing and studying politics and community life first-hand.
