Politics Society

We look to have friendly discussions about a variety of topics, from the financial sector to feminism. Featuring guest speakers ranging from staff to students and sometimes from beyond the campus! The Politics society is the perfect place for all University of Sheffield students who are enthusiastic about Politics and International Relations. We provide all sorts of opportunities for you to engage in with course friends, alumni, and staff. Most of our short courses have no formal entry requirements and are open to all students. Your application must be supported by academic references, ie each referee should be able to testify to your academic abilities, achievements and motivation.

Those applying for scholarship funding should take note of application deadlines. Throughout the year, we host guest speakers from political and extra-political backgrounds for panel debates and guest lectures. Hear from leading politicians, diplomats, activitists, journalists and political commentators. Some of recent guests include Peter Hitchens, Anna Soubry, Carne Ross, Sir Steve Webb, Claire Fox, and Stephen Kinnock MP. We invite you to give your views and pose questions to our special guests. In addition, students will undertake a dissertation – SPCC Applied Research Project , with the possibility of working on a project defined by a public or private sector stakeholder.

Whatever you decide, it won’t affect how the academic department assesses your application and whether they decide to make you an offer. If your department makes you an offer of a place, you’re guaranteed a place at one of our colleges. The University will seek to deliver this course in accordance with the description set out in this course page. However, there may be situations in which it is desirable or necessary for the University to make changes in course provision, either before or after registration. The safety of students, staff and visitors is paramount and major changes to delivery or services may have to be made in circumstances of a pandemic (including Covid-19), epidemic or local health emergency. In addition, in certain circumstances, for example due to visa difficulties or because the health needs of students cannot be met, it may be necessary to make adjustments to course requirements for international study.

The DPIR also hosts a wide range of research centres and programmes which actively seek to develop collaborative research activity via conferences, workshops and other academic events, and which include graduate students in their activities. This is why we’re not looking for performing skills alone but for a range of intellectual, creative, critical and inquisitive qualities when we select candidates for a place. The Major Research Project is an opportunity for final year students to develop greater depth of subject knowledge through a sustained focus on a topic of their own choosing. The research project may be pursued as EITHER a purely theoretical project resulting in a 10,000-word dissertation; OR as practice-as-research, resulting in a substantial practical project linked to a 6,000-word dissertation. Whichever route is undertaken, the major research project requires a more sustained and focused application of the research skills acquired in previous years of this degree course. We run a mixture of events to make sure you get the most out of politics at the University of Birmingham, including social, sports, academic, and careers & employability events.
