An annual MA International Relations (all pathways) Fee Waiver Scholarship is available to international students with suitable academic credentials. This will cover 100% of the tuition fees(£13,620) and is open to international students starting their course in September 2016.
The MA in International Relations offers you the flexibility of choosing either our general programme, or one of three specialist pathways (Global Political Economy, Security and Environment) to suit your specific interests. Our postgraduate students benefit from being taught by a team of research-active scholars who publish in their areas of expertise.
In addition to the taught modules, students on our MA in International Relations also get the opportunity to go on a four-day study tour to Brussels and The Hague. Travel and accommodation are included in your fees, and this includes visits to key institutions of the European Union and a range of international organisations, including the International Criminal Court and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which was awarded the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. This trip enables students to get a first-hand experience of how these important international institutions work.
