Politics most commonly defined as the study of power and the what, who, where, why and when of that universal phenomenon. However, there is a lot more substance lurking under this umbrella than many initially suspect.

  • Studying politics isn't just about watching the news and retaining the information (although that helps!). It is also about learning political theories, the structure and relationships of institutions, historical political events and their impact etc. This content can be confusing and overwhelming and we can help you to unravel it.

  • Politics essays are slightly different to those you write in other subjects; they are more analytical and evaluative and less descriptive. We can help with your writing techniques to ensure that you are hitting all of the assessment objectives.
