We teach over 9,500 students, and offer more than 600 subjects across 40 fields of undergraduate and graduate study, including languages, history, media and communications, politics and international studies and psychology.

Led by our academics, who are internationally renowned researchers in their fields, they will help you develop scholarly, critical, and creative thinking. Then, they’ll support you in applying these skills to real-world scenarios.
