    At Swansea University, we believe above all, that the study of International Relations should always open your mind and extend your skills. The BA International Relations provides students with a detailed understanding of the international system, key issues and an appreciation of the global dynamics at work. The twenty-first Century has often been called the Asia-Pacific Century, and with good reason when you consider it is home to the rising power of China and host to trouble spots ranging from nuclear weapons in Northeast Asia to Islamic terrorism in Southeast Asia.


    All applicants receive individual consideration. Our preferred offers for UK applicants are BBB-BBC at A-level. However, flexible offers are made on review of the application form, after taking into consideration the subjects studied, predicted or achieved grades, reference and personal statement.

    For candidates offering the International Baccalaureate, a typical offer would be 32-30 points. We ask for Welsh Baccalaureate plus BC at A-level. Access candidates should have 15 Distinctions and 18 Merits. Candidates studying for American qualifications should have a minimum of 550 in each part of the SAT reasoning and subject tests (or 1650 overall). We require a minimum IELT score of 6.0.
