Politics, Languages & International Studies (PoLIS) is one of the largest departments in the University.

Our students are ambitious and highly committed leaders of the future who are preparing for careers in international politics, business and communication.

Many staff are leading scholars in their field and are involved in a wide range of research activities, including collaborative projects at both national and international levels.

Our research is categorised around three core clusters:
