Our graduates go on to a wide range of successful careers. Contrary to popular belief, the aim of a politics degree is not to produce potential Members of Parliament. It equips you with a range of skills that can be applied in a wide variety of occupations. To help your career prospects, we have created a unique optional employability module, Politics In Action* in the second year which gives you valuable work experience.
Our students in recent years have gone into such things as:
- Civil Service Administration (both public and private)
- The armed services
- The police
- The media
- Management (industry and commerce)
- The legal profession
- Banking and accountancy
- Careers in international organisations such as the European Commission in Brussels
- Further study in Political Research
*Modules were available at the time of writing, please be aware that at times the selection of course modules on offer may vary.
