Politics and International Relations at UWE Threatened with Closure

Earlier this month the University of the West of England’s Academic board supported a recommendation from the Vice Chancellor’s Executive Group to close all politics programs in order to refocus the university on skills based learning and vocational courses.

The Politics and IR department at UWE is high performing with strong student satisfaction scores and research output.

The students have made a short film as part of the campaign to save the department which is available to watch on YouTube.  If you are interested in supporting the students and staff in their fight to save the program, you may wish to sign this petition.
