What will I learn?

Our degree courses with Foundation year offer the opportunity to prepare you for advanced study before you progress onto a full honours degree at the University of Westminster. Whether you do not feel ready for degree-level study, don’t have the right qualifications, want to change your subject specialism or return to study after an absence from education, we aim to encourage a broad range of students to undertake our Foundation year in order to progress onto their full honours degree with us. The Foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to explore new ideas, opening up new perspectives on the key debates within your chosen field. Core modules accelerate your academic and professional development and you will also take modules from areas closely related to your chosen field, giving you the chance to develop a cross-disciplinary perspective on your course. On successful completion of the Foundation year, you will be able to move on to study for the Politics BA Honours degree which, over a further three years study, equips you with an understanding of the relationship between government and society in regions all over the world, from Europe, the Middle East and Asia to North and South America. Studying for a Politics degree will help you to answer important questions about how conflicts between different interest groups and states are resolved; how resources and power are distributed in society; how decisions are made; and why political systems develop in the ways that they do.
