Want to know how and why decisions that affect society are made?
Become equipped with the concepts, theories, and facts you need to make sense of the world around you.
Politics is about contestations for power and how we make decisions in society – who gets what, when, and how – from the local community to the nation and internationally.
Politics is concerned with the conflict of ideas and values. It has to do with who governs.
It also has to do with how and why decisions that affect all of us are made.
That could vary from how much students should pay to study at university to whether the UN should sanction military interventions.

To be admitted to an undergraduate qualification, applicants will need a minimum level of academic achievement from school, or another university or tertiary institution.
The specific level depends on which country or region of the world they are from.
If you don't have the skills or qualifications you need to be accepted into your chosen study, you can do foundation qualifications.
