This taster session is for all those with an offer for the following programmes:

Our wide range of politics programmes reflects our expertise in a very broad range of areas including British, American, European (including EU) politics, international affairs, and global politics (including the study of war), the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia, in addition to political theory, nationalism, the study of the UK Parliament, public policy and political economy. 

Modules cover everything from political communications to political economy, all of which involve up-to-the-minute readings. We also make our assessment as varied and engaging as possible, using a mixture of essays, learning logs and presentations to give our students experience of different approaches. As a measure of our success, the 2022 National Student Survey ranked Birkbeck Politics 1st in London for teaching, learning opportunities and overall satisfaction. 

Birkbeck teaching takes place in the evening, leaving you free to study, volunteer or explore London during the day.
