Politics deals with the decisions which govern our lives as members of states and political groupings and how to evaluate the choices which political systems must regularly make. The course will address political theory, precedents in the political world and gives the opportunity to study across broad political systems.
Politics is studied as part of the Human, Social, and Political Sciences curriculum at Cambridge and in a number of forms at Oxford including PPE and History & Politics. Students can tailor the course to suit their interests from the start while retaining the option to take individual papers in other subjects as well.
We help students prepare for their applications to Oxford in Politics-related courses including Oxford PPE and provide bespoke guidance at every stage. Please visit one our dedicated sections for more information on any of the individual subject areas.
