About

The International Law, Ethics and Politics programme from University of Birmingham will cover the application of International Law, European Law, ethics and international politics to problems such as poverty reduction; international trade; war and terrorism; climate change; and democracy.

Overview

This International Law, Ethics and Politics programme from University of Birmingham is ideal for candidates from the NGO world who wish to improve their academic credentials, and students from humanities and social sciences who want to take Law courses. The course should also be of interest to graduates in public or European law who want to deepen their understanding of issues that they have previously encountered only within a legal framework. This programme can also be used as a route into PhD research.

Why study this course?

Multidisciplinary – you have the opportunity to work both within and across three different disciplines.

Flexibility – the wide range of modules on offer allows you to both identify and explore your specific interests within each discipline.

Small classes – teaching on the Masters-level modules involve mainly small-group seminars allowing you to really get to grips with the learning material.

Be a part of an active postgraduate community – although you will work across departments, the programme is based within the Department of Philosophy, a lively and stimulating department where you can contribute to and engage in research seminars, workshops, a weekly speaker series, reading groups and conferences.

Your degree will provide excellent preparation for your future career, but this can also be enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University and the College of Arts and Law.

General requirements

  • You need an upper second-class Honours degree, or equivalent, preferably in Law, Philosophy, Politics or another relevant subject. Appropriate work experience will also be taken into consideration.
  • If your undergraduate degree is in another subject, you are still very welcome to apply. We consider every application on its merits and we are happy to consider applicants with diverse academic backgrounds. Your level of academic achievement, letters of reference, and personal statement will all have strong influence on our decision. We may also require you to submit a writing sample. This should be around 3-4 pages long, and although it does not need to be a Philosophy, Law or Politics essay, it should provide strong evidence of your potential for the type of discursive, analytical, writing that is required in these disciplines at postgraduate level.
