Overview

This is a diverse programme allowing you to combine the study of Spanish with International Relations. International Relations covers such topics as politics, economics and the diplomatic history of the 20th century. Combined with the opportunity to study at a European university, this course offers a unique opportunity to learn in a truly international and interdisciplinary way.

Students applying for this degree at Birmingham will join the Department of Political Science and International Studies (POLSIS), a department that scores high in the National Student Survey (NSS) and is consistently viewed as one of the best departments in the country.

Our students particularly enjoy the opportunities to hear from influential guest speakers about their lives in politics. Recent speakers have included Alistair Darling, David Miliband and John Bercow. Learn more about your student experience.

If you want to take advantage of a unique opportunity to be supported with a work placement opportunity as part of your final year, this course includes the opportunity to undertake a ‘Professional Development’ module as part of your optional module choices.
