Postgraduate options for a career in government

Coming to the end of your undergraduate degree and thinking of your next step towards a career in government?

The College of Arts offer three Taught Masters Programmes in Political Science and European Union Studies that can help you get one step closer to fulfilling your career aspirations. These courses don’t require you to have previous study experience in that field, and give you the chance to change the current direction of your studies.

In our Master of Policy and Governance you will learn about policy analysis and strategic decision-making, with a goal to progress towards a career in local, regional, national, and not-for-profit roles in governance. Our Master of International Relations and Diplomacy is perfect if you are interested in working in international and global affairs. And in our Master of European Union Studies you will learn about the EU’s global role in foreign policy development, human rights, trade and multiculturalism.

Applications to enrol are now open.

International students – are you thinking about exam results?

Are you looking over your results and wishing you had done better? It can feel overwhelming to do your assignments or exams. It can also be discouraging to receive feedback and marks that are not what you’re used to. 

Remember that it takes time to learn how things work in a different academic environment. Using a second language can also put more stress on you and affect your performance.

The good news is you’re not alone, and there is support here at UC for you.

The Academic Skills Centre is located on the third floor of the Puaka-James Hight Library. It offers several resources to help you improve your academic results, including online resources.

If you need assistance with writing, check out the four-part Introduction to Essay Writing course. You can also book a consultation with a Learning Advisor to review your writing one on one.

If you want to practice your speaking and listening skills, come along to the Speaking and Listening for English Language Learners workshops

For assistance dealing with cultural adjustment and transition, anxiety, worry, or stress, staff at the Student Care and UC Health Centre provide wonderful support.

It’s ok to ask for help, it’s part of being a successful student.
