590x288 Ranking 2018

We pride ourselves in being an incredibly supportive department and as such as we have many resources to help students during their studies.


We have a number of dedicated (award winning) teaching staff, who are here to provide you with support whenever you need it. This includes our Undergraduate and Graduate Administrators, who will be able to offer support with any difficult circumstances you may face whilst studying.



We have a friendly and well resourced library dedicated to Social and Political Sciences, where you can borrow the books and journals that you will need to complete your studies, reducing costs of study. There is also quiet space to work and you can use the printers so that you don't have to buy your own. The library is also closely connected with the central University Library and are able to help you access resources from here too.

You can find out more about the library on their website or YouTube channel.
