Students pursuing UK and USA routes will need knowledge and understanding of constitutional arrangements in the UK and the USA with reference to devolution and federalism.
In both the USA and the UK, the central state shares power with regional governments. The USA has a constitutionally embedded federal system, which means power is divided between the federal government and the governments of all 50 US states. The UK, on the other hand, has a devolved system which has evolved over time, where Westminster has delegated some law-making powers to the legislative assemblies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
