Ranking and student feedback
Through this course, we offer you an in-depth analysis of major scholarly debates in history, politics, political thought, political economy and international relations, both within and beyond the European Union. You will study a range of approaches to the topic on one of the two required modules and then choose from a wide range of specialist modules covering specific regions or issues relating to contemporary Europe, such as EU foreign policy, immigration, economic governance, law, political economy, lobbying and policy making, nationalism and the EU, Russia, the EU and Asia. If you choose the General Pathway, you will spend your whole time with us. If you choose either the French or German Pathway, you will spend your second semester at either the Institut d’Etudes Politiques (Sciences Po) in Paris or the Humboldt Universität in Berlin. Both institutions provide a wide range of modules allowing you to further deepen your knowledge of both European and host country institutions, politics and policies. The course is ideally suited for anyone with a degree in European Studies, politics, international relations or international political economy. We also welcome recent graduates from other disciplines in the humanities, the social sciences and law, as well as those from a professional background.

As well as the Student Union there are also other facilities on offer to help adjust to life in the UK including the English Language Centre and help with legal paperwork such as visas, money and fees advice and general assistance with getting settled in. The London Student's Union, which later became the King's College London Students Union was founded back in 1873 and has claims to be the oldest in Europe. It provides students with a vast range of activities outside the classroom including over 50 different sports clubs and some 200 activity groups. It operates two bars, a shop and a gym on campus. Its student media came in the top three in the country and has an award winning website. In 2011, the union was responsible for the first student-led think tank in London, which has a membership of around 2000, making it the largest of its kind in Europe. It covers seven different policy areas and assists in lobbying politicians, NGO's and other policymakers. It also produces a peer-reviewed journal each September called The Spectrum.
