This programme offers a multidisciplinary approach to international studies and responds to evolving notions of our global environment providing students with the tools needed to understand and question the changes and challenges of global issues in the 21st century. Students have the opportunity to specialise in one of two pathways (Language and Culture OR Global Relations).
The flexibility of the degree structure enables students to follow their interests and deepen specialist knowledge by exploring cultural and political dynamics that influence our global world. Modern foreign languages play a particular role within the programme. Students can select up to two modern foreign languages in their first year and follow this throughout their degree. Languages are taken at one of three levels (beginners, post-GCSE or post-A level). A language option is not compulsory within the global relations endorsement but it is strongly recommended for the work-placement in the final year of study and for the possibility to go on an Erasmus exchange in the second year of study.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
