Course content

The MSc Global Politics programme at NCH enables students to develop structured and applied knowledge of the vibrant field of global politics and the evolving concept of global citizenship. Students will explore in-depth the development of global democracy and the notion of transnational justice and will benefit from training in research methods and framework models.

The programme is suited to students from a variety of backgrounds, including recent graduates of humanities disciplines and career professionals with sufficient prior qualifications. This interdisciplinary degree offers a good balance between political theory and political science.

Information for international students

English language requirements

We would typically require an IELTS score of 7.0 (including 6.5 in each component). If you need a visa to study in the UK, then we can only accept the IELTS test from a UKVI approved centre and not any other English language tests due to the visa requirements set by the UK Government. You must have obtained these scores within two years before application to NCH.

EU/EEA students who have taken higher level English as part of their secondary school or university examinations, or who have been educated entirely in English for a minimum of three years before application, may be exempt from these requirements.
