This programme will shape your understanding of global politics in the contemporary world by introducing you to a wide range of theories, approaches and stimulating debates surrounding international politics and relations.
You’ll analyse topics central to the functioning of the international system and explore contemporary and historical approaches, focusing on country-specific, regional and international processes. Our emphasis on international studies invites an interdisciplinary approach and reflects the broadening nature of the subject beyond the confines of inter-state relationships.
You’ll have the opportunity to develop expertise in a specialist area of interest to you, whilst working with leaders in the field of international relations. As well as enhancing your knowledge in international relations and the complex and contradictory forces that shape the global agenda, this programme will equip you with excellent research skills, methodologies and approaches.
I loved practically every minute of my time as a student in Leeds. Meeting so many other students, some who will be your friends for life, is definitely one of the highs. As well as all the opportunities to get involved in such diverse and inspiring interests and causes.
I was Campaigns Manager for the Stop AIDS society, for example, and also taught sex and relationships education in Leeds schools as part of a scheme with other students. Getting involved with societies and campaigning activities is a lot of fun, at the same time as being great for your CV and a helping hand when it comes to writing job applications.
Leeds is a great city for students. The night life is fantastic and there’s something for everyone, no matter your taste in music, clubs etc. I really liked how close the university was to both the city centre and the areas where most students lived. Hyde Park, with the student hang outs, shops and cafes was definitely the place for me.
I’m currently working as a Research & Communications Officer for Population and Sustainability Network, a network of international organisations promoting closer collaboration between development, environment and reproductive health organisations on population issues.
My main responsibilities are undertaking research to support advocacy work, and managing communications, including the website. As a small organisation my role is fairly diverse and gives me the opportunity to get involved in many areas of work.
