UCL European & International Social & Political Studies

European Social and Political Studies (ESPS) and International Social and Political Studies (ISPS) are challenging, flexible, diverse four-year programmes at a university known for academic innovation, open access and the quality of its teaching. Students gain not only from UCL’s world-class teaching system and the insights of its renowned humanities, language and social sciences scholars, but also from the expertise of their European and international counterparts.
