Our Students



There is a lot of fantastic work being done by our undergraduate students in the Politics and History discipline. Some of their latest achievements can be seen on our Undergraduate Students page. Click here for information on Postgraduate research being done in the discipline.




Charles Andrew Woodward, “The State of Deception & The Time Bomb: Evaluating Torture as Counter-Terrorism”, in E-International Relations Students.

Charlie’s major essay for POL30009 Critical Perspectives on Terrorism was published  by E-International Relations (E-IR), the world’s leading open access website for students and scholars of international politics. The website was established in November 2007, and is recommended by leading academics and practitioners from around the world. It receives around 220,000 unique visitors a month and is peer-reviewed.  Charlie’s essay, titled “The State of Deception & The Time Bomb: Evaluating Torture as Counter-Terrorism”, examined how governments circumvent rather than suspend the rule of law regarding torture in counter-terrorism practices.  Well done, Charlie!


Daniel Nilo won the Baylis and Smith Prize in 2014 for his coursework in POL20010 International Relations and Security Studies. The prize is awarded to the best student in a course on international relations and the winner receives $150 of books from Oxford University Press. The prize is named after the major international relations textbook The Globalization of World Politics.
