international relations university


The Faculty of Politics and International Relations at NCIUL is home to experts in this field.

Our degree programmes combine the study of international relations with the more traditional discipline of regional and international politics and a wide selection of optional modules will allow you to specialise in a variety of different areas. Our modules provide an engaging and exciting balance of current issues, theoretical analysis and historical context. You will focus on the political processes and foreign affairs issues affecting the world today and gain an understanding of how relations between countries are structured.

We regularly review our modules and their contents to make sure we are teaching the most up-to-date topics that match the latest research conducted by our academic members of staff. You will be allocated a personal tutor – a member of academic staff who will support your academic progress.

When you graduate from the Faculty of Politics and International Relations you will acquire not only subject specific training, but also a range of excellent transferable skills that you will need for professional life, such as the enhancement of your critical thinking, the ability to work autonomously and as part of a team, to communicate complex ideas effectively and in a clear and concise fashion, and to use rigorous research methods and techniques.

Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities and the flexible nature of our programmes will allow you to specialise in those aspects of politics and international relations that most interest you.
