How you'll learn
At Regent's you’ll have the freedom to explore your interests in a supportive and nurturing environment with interactive classes, regular one-to-one contact with tutors, specialist facilities, industry opportunities and tailored careers advice – ensuring you develop the skills, experience and confidence you need to succeed.
You'll be taught in interactive classes incorporating activities like debates, role-plays, simulations and real case study analysis. You'll produce policy briefs, blogs, posters and podcasts, and you'll take regular field trips into the city to explore museums, political buildings, galleries and more – and engage directly with those in the field.

Contact hours: Years 1, 2 and 3: no less than 14 hours per week.
You'll be taught by professionals who have rich and varied careers working in a range of IR and political settings (including NGOs, regional governance, UN, human rights law and social enterprise) alongside teaching. They regularly have work published in journals and have outstanding research records. Their knowledge and experience ensure your classes are shaped by the most current industry practices.
You'll also be allocated a personal tutor, who'll meet you on a one-to-one basis at various stages throughout the year to provide you with guidance and advice to support your personal and professional development.
Throughout the course, you'll be expected to undertake extra reading, personal research and reflection, as well as preparing work for workshops, watching documentaries, listening to podcasts and keeping on top of the news.
Method of assessment
Your skills and knowledge will be assessed via a wide range of written work such as essays, research reports, policy briefs and article reviews. You'll also prepare research proposals, data analysis reports and give individual and group presentations to develop your oral communication skills and your expertise in articulating and presenting your ideas.
