What you will study

Alongside core modules, you will study subject-specific modules that will equip you with a foundation of knowledge for your chosen field of study.

Core Modules

These modules support students as they prepare for their postgraduate studies, extending and developing existing language and academic study skills.

The aim of the module is to develop knowledge and understanding of how to conduct an informed literature search, and how to produce a concise description and succinct analysis of literature relevant to professional practice and / or advanced academic study in your chosen degree.

The aim of the module is to introduce students to social research methods of direct relevance to their further studies in law and familiarise them with standard research terminology. The module will cover qualitative, quantitative and evidence-based approaches to research in academic contexts.

The aims of the module are to provide students with a general introduction to government and society in the UK, focussing on the nature and sources of the British Constitution. The module will also look at more contemporary debates and events which have shaped or which could challenge the structure and role of the UK’s centralised and devolved political institutions. The module further aims to consider the nature of democracy through questions of power, justice, order, conflict, legitimacy and accountability.

I have a lot of international friends here at BUIC, and I’ve learnt so much from them. There is always a lot to do together both on and off-campus.

I would recommend UGIC because it is based on the main University of Greenwich campus, a cosmopolitan university. At UGIC, there are students from all around the world, and I've made a lot of friends from exciting places."

Gozel Turkmenistan, University of Greenwich International College (UGIC)

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
