MA/LLM in Diplomacy and International Law

Designed to introduce students to the fields of diplomacy and international law, this programme draws upon modules from both PPR and Law. The programme is constructed to permit students to graduate with either a MA or a LLM (for the LLM, a minimum of 100 credits must be earned through module registrations with Law). The programme has three complementary core modules which treat different aspects of diplomacy and foreign policy and international law. The programme also draws upon distinguished practitioners with experience in the fields of diplomacy and international law and may include student trips to, for example, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London, European Union organisations in Brussels and the Geneva international organisations. A minimum of two modules must be chosen from each department.

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.
