Outreach

Here in the department of International Politics, we are dedicated to providing outreach programmes for schools and colleges across the UK.

Groups of students are warmly invited to visit the Department and Aberystwyth, where we host various events for schools and colleges, including 1 or 2 day political crisis simulations, thematic workshops, and Welsh Baccalaureate sessions. 

Our staff are also very happy to visit schools and colleges to give talks on studying politics at university, present sample lectures on aspects of the A-Level curriculum, run one-day crisis games, and lead a range of interactive workshops on national and international political issues. These activities are all designed as A-Level enrichment activities, to complement what schools and colleges provide. We also attend UCAS and education fairs alongside the University Schools Liaison Team.

We have created this page to give you information about how we can complement what schools and colleges provide in the area of politics, government, and international relations and as a taster of Aberystwyth University and the Department of International Politics.

If you would like more information then please get in touch with our Department's Admissions and Schools Liaison team, headed by Alistair Shepherd and Sarah Whitehead.
