Prospective students

We live in a period of rapid change in all spheres of life - political, cultural, economic and social. The study of politics and international relations is concerned with the fundamental challenges linked to such change. Our degrees provide the means of making sense of a range of important issues and of training people to use skills in a variety of work settings.

Staff in the Department are researching a wide range of subjects and teaching is informed by the very latest information and research findings. The Department focuses on political life at the global, the national and the local levels.

The different approaches complement and enrich one another, and this is reflected in the way in which our degree programmes are designed and taught. Despite approaching our centenary, we are also a 'young' Department.

This creates a unique opportunity to build from scratch a curriculum in political science and international relations that is truly up-to-date and reflects the most recent innovations in the discipline. We believe that the research and teaching we offer at Royal Holloway is of the highest quality.

Teaching excellence recognised with multiple teaching prizes

Since 2006, staff in the Department have received a total of nineteen teaching prizes. Click here for details.
