Course summary

Course description

International Relations is one of the most popular courses at postgraduate level. You will be taught and supervised by experienced staff with strong interests in critical approaches to the study of global politics.

Teaching and learning

Part-time students complete the full-time course over two years. There are no evening or weekend course units available on the part-time course.

You must first check the schedule of the compulsory course units and then select your optional units to suit your requirements.

Updated timetable information will be available from mid-August and you will have the opportunity to discuss your unit choices during induction week with your course director.

Career opportunities

Former graduates have gone on to work for international organisations including NATO and the UNDP, or for foreign offices.

The course, would also be suitable for students wishing to go into teaching, journalism or any career where advanced knowledge of international politics coupled with an excellent capacity to communicate effectively will be an advantage.

The University also has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate.
