International Relations is one of the University of Lincolnâ??s Politics courses. You have opportunities to undertake voluntary, competitive work placements with local councils. These offer valuable experience of a professional social policy environment and are coordinated around your studies. It is a chance to observe how social policy is set by central government and executed by local authorities, including how competing priorities can result in difficult decisions on where to allocate resources. Field trips have included visits to the United Nations headquarters in New York and the European Parliament in Strasbourg and Brussels.
