    International Relations is a vital and dynamic field of intellectual inquiry that offers an interdisciplinary exploration of human interaction. Students undertaking the course will come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and it is not assumed that all students will have similar abilities or skills. It is not our aim to encourage further specialisation along the line of a student´s first degree but rather to complement existing knowledge and build upon transferable capabilities. Overall this is a unique opportunity for graduates both with and without International Relations training to study at a very high level for a postgraduate degree with global relevance.


    Applicants should possess a first or second class honours degree from a British university or its equivalent overseas. Students are encouraged to discuss the course with tutors prior to application.

    Applicants whose native language is not English must provide evidence of their English language capabilities at an approved level (TOEFL; IELTS; Cambridge Proficiency Certificate etc). Applicants who fail to reach this standard may be required to complete an agreed English Language tuition programme prior to the commencement of the MA.


    This MA programme is especially designed for those with an interdisciplinary background who wish to more fully comprehend core issues and approaches within International Relations


    Our aim is to foster a set of intellectual skills to enable more informed and effective participation in an ´ever-shrinking´ global society. This goal is to provide a rigorous and intellectually challenging foundation in approaches to the study and practice of international relations while developing an understanding and sensitivity to key issues in diverse areas of the modern world. The MA offers an exciting opportunity for graduates to develop their understanding of international affairs both theoretically and through their own or others´ experience.
