Never before has the study of Europe seemed so pertinent. But the recent vote to leave the European Union is just one more chapter in the political story of the continent. We're ranked 5th in the UK for Politics & International Studies (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018) and offer exciting courses including European Politics BA and European Studies BA. 

Based in the centre of London, minutes away from the Houses of Parliament, you will interact with the political and cultural institutions of this global capital city.

European Studies allows you to combine the study of a language with the politics, history and contemporary culture of France, Germany or Spain. No prior knowledge of German or Spanish is required for the ab initio version of these pathways, you will learn the language from scratch.
