Kirna Kataria, 4th Year, BA International Relations with French (Year Abroad)

Description
When I then saw that the POLSIS department had an exchange agreement with Sciences Po, I felt that we were presented with a great opportunity; not only did we have the option of going to France to improve our language skills, but Sciences Po is also a world-class institution for Political Science and International Relations. I was particularly interested in gaining a French perspective on International Relations, which is otherwise a very Anglo-Saxon discipline.
