Course Synopsis
Oxford College offers this Quality Assured Level 3 Professional Diploma course in Government and Politics. By the end of your course, your knowledge and awareness of the world around you and of current affairs should be significantly enhanced. You should also have developed your ability to analyse information and to communicate detailed and complex arguments effectively.

Government and Politics is a dynamic and ever-changing subject, and it is essential that you are familiar with contemporary issues, developments and debates. Having an interest and knowledge in such matters is a major advantage to studying this subject.

However, knowledge of current affairs is not sufficient alone, and you need to absorb and digest lots of information while studying this course. Wider reading is always advised, not only of the recommended textbook (non compulsory), but also of other books which can be recommended by your course tutor.

Candidates who do not read a quality newspaper or listen to or watch current affairs programmes can only hope to obtain a high grade if they have quite extraordinary knowledge, and even then are unlikely to do as well as candidates who read newspapers and who follow the news and current affairs programmes on radio and television.

Each module is presented separately and is clearly highlighted within the course notes. The content of the modules have references to the textbook and carefully selected websites for wider student research and reading. Key words are highlighted and explained throughout, and there are regular tasks and questions throughout each module to assess and check that learning has taken place.

All units are broken down into clear subject topics, and students should spend the amount of time studying for each topic as advised by their course tutor. Each topic module has been written for ease of understanding and topic coverage may be of different length and difficulty depending on the level of detail and information required. You will need to study the modules in the sequence provided.

Government & Politics has a distinct language and terminology all of its own. If you have problems remembering terms it is a good idea to write them on index cards or to develop a file of key words as you go along in order to help you learn them.
