Course Summary

The Reach Cambridge Politics and International Relations Course provides students with a fascinating introduction to the world of national and international political systems, giving them the opportunity to discuss and debate the fundamental questions of political life. Covering a broad range of topics within the discipline, the course examines key political thinkers, current global problems, and the principles of the state and the international system. Students engage in practical exercises such as a mock Parliament and a Model United Nations. Past years courses included study visits to the British Parliament, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and embassies in London, through which students gained first-hand insights into the political decision- and policy-making. The course is taught by researchers from the University of Cambridge Department of Politics and International Relations, and practitioners with the experience of working in national administration, EU institutions and the United Nations. Whether interested in the subject at university or intrigued by political questions, this course will provide students with an enormously enriching understanding of national and international politics.
