MA in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy

This exciting new programme is designed to introduce students to theories, issues and processes connected with diplomacy and foreign policy. The programme is especially relevant to those thinking about or currently working in diplomacy, international NGOs, and international policy and politics. In addition to its two complementary core modules in diplomacy and foreign policy, the programme uses a wide range of optional modules in, for example, international relations, politics and policy. Distinguished diplomatic and foreign policy practitioners directly contribute to the programme and student trips to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London, European Union organisations in Brussels and the Geneva international organisations are planned.

My trip to Geneva was wonderful.  I enjoyed the visit to the UN and ICRC in particular; it was an eye-opening learning experience.

This trip ... expanded my professional network and connected my academic experience with the professional field.
