Broaden your curricular choices by studying SQA Higher Politics online.


Everything in the world is touched by politics to some extent, and so it is a good idea to study politics as an academic subject in terms of developing as a global and informed citizen. The Higher Politics course comprises three units: Political Theory, Political Systems and Political Parties and Elections. You can work through these at your own pace and there will be frequent opportunities to work digitally with your instructor. We recommend that you begin the course with “Political Theory” as the subsequent units build upon the ideas covered in this first unit.

SQA Registration

If you wish to take the course assessment (examination and coursework) or stand alone units, contact your SQA Coordinator or school Business Manager to register. You can find further guidance on this here. You are welcome to sit the final exam in Dollar Academy, if your current school cannot accommodate.
