It’s not just what you learn, it’s where you learn it

The University of Cambridge, and Oxford in particular, are renowned for having produced some of the world’s most iconic and influential politicians. From Boris Johnson, to Theresa May, Margaret Thatcher, Bill Clinton and Harold Wilson – could your name be next on list?

Working with your tutor through small seminar classes and tutorials, you’ll cover the basics of how politics works, examine different roles within government, as well as study the behaviours of some of the most iconic political parties and campaign groups.

Our politics summer course also allows you to collaborate closely with other students, where you’ll uncover your negotiation and debating skills as you analyse important ideas in politics: democracy; the role of race, class and gender; the concept of freedom to name a few.

From past politics to future controversies and all the parties and propaganda in between

So many questions. So many sources. So much fake news! Gain the skills and knowledge needed to answer them justly on our Politics study course.

We’ll investigate questions that are crucial to our existence in society, and understanding the contemporary arguments and debates we’ll face every day:

Through political history, we’ll learn how past institutions operated and how this affected life and society. How did they contribute to wars, revolutions, famine or social reform? We’ll tackle the questions head-on. We’ll take a look at the affect of politics on life today – the influence and impact of parties, individuals and the media. The political theory throughout will take us on a journey of inquisition, wondering what’s the role of democracy? Are there better ways to run a nation? We’ll approach contemporary debates with a balanced state of mind and collaborate for well-rounded enlightenment.
