The BA Honours International Politics and Law degree is taught within Middlesex University’s School of Law where we deliver high-quality teaching and research, and provide a supportive learning environment, helping students to achieve excellent academic results. The programme provides students with the knowledge and understanding of the legal, economic, political and cultural implications of living in an increasingly inter-dependent world and provide them experiential opportunities through which they can link academic work with 'real world' situations in order to conceptualise the meaning of theory in the wider world context. The programme is structured to ensure students will graduate with the relevant and up-to-date skills and abilities necessary to become effective professionals. The Programme seeks to develop students’ critical thinking, writing, and analytical skills, specialized knowledge of the foundations, application and interpretation of laws and complex global issues, and provides a variety of opportunities to network and learn from global leaders in law and politics. All students are urged to complete either a Dissertation or Law Project, and also have the opportunity to complete a work placement during the third year.
The programme offers an excellent opportunity to gain real world work experience and reflect and improve upon employability skills by providing the opportunity for students to enroll in a work placement. Some examples of recent student placements include Embassies, World Food Programme, UNHCR, International Finance organizations, business consultancy firms, event management companies, UAE Red Crescent, international and local law firms, in house legal departments. This program also provides students with the preparatory knowledge and skills to successfully pursue post-graduate educational programs in Social Science, Politics, International Relations, Law, Public Affairs and Government.
