Welcome from the Dean
I am delighted to be able to welcome you to the Faculty of Politics and International Relations within NC IUL. Although we are still relatively new in the UK, we have come a long way in the Higher Education sector.
This is a great time to be part of our university as you will join an amazing community of faculty, students, staff, and alumni dedicated to providing exceptional education and real-world experiences for our students.
Our focus is on equipping our students to be able to rise to the challenges of the modern world. Therefore our programmes aim to develop the next generation of diplomats, political aides, analysts, foreign service officers, journalists, academics, and representatives of non- governmental and non-profit organisations. We achieve this through political and foreign affairs methodological training to the highest international standards, and by providing students with the knowledge and skills to become independent researchers.
Also our members of staff are not only experienced and committed teachers, but also engage in research within their disciplines that deeply informs the syllabus of each module we offer to our students. Research within the faculty covers a wide range of topics, which broadly fall under four sub-disciplinary groupings, namely, international politics, international relations, international conflict and security studies, and Middle Eastern studies. We also have expertise on international political economy, international law, the study of migration, government and politics of China, and development in Africa. There are also some optional modules for students to choose from, which are taught by other faculties within the University.
We believe in encouraging our students to actively participate in workshops, research and networking activities and our London location puts us at the heart of the UK’s political, business and international community. This vibrant city will allow you to combine your studies with an interesting social and cultural life.
I am sure your career with us at NC IUL will be an enriching, rewarding and enjoyable one.
I wish you every success with your studies here.
