Politics and International Relations


Welcome to the Department of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy

On behalf of theOlli_Heath_4 Department of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy, I would like to welcome you to Royal Holloway.  You have done exceptionally well to gain a place with us and I hope you are looking forward to your time at university.

We want your time at Royal Holloway to be happy and productive.  We aim to provide a welcoming and supportive environment that will help you to grow intellectually and socially. 

This process begins with the upcoming Welcome Week, which will give you the opportunity to meet members of the Department’s academic and administrative staff, other students and especially our active student societies, and representatives from College services. 

Attending the various activities will help you get off to a great start at university, meet your tutors and get to know your fellow students. You will also have an opportunity to prepare for the start of teaching on Monday, 30th  September 2019.

You can find plenty of information about College-wide Welcome Week activities at the links provided below.  Please read the information carefully.  We don’t want you to miss out on anything!

If you want to know what kind of things the School has been doing over the summer, you can visit our website, or follow us on Twitter or on Facebook.

We look forward to seeing you in Welcome Week!

If you are studying Philosophy with an Integrated Foundation Year, please see the Integrated Foundation Year page for more information.
