Our International Relations course will introduce students to global issues which form today’s political and humanitarian environment, as well as developing the English language skills necessary to understand them. Students will analyse how and why the international landscape looks as it does, by studying real-life political models and contemporary global issues. Our students will apply their understanding to a range of interactive and challenging role-play scenarios, to enhance their skills in presentation, negotiation and diplomacy.

Time to Shine

To assist students in developing effective presentation and diplomacy skills, they are challenged to think about the perspectives of a variety of countries throughout the course and look at different conflict resolution strategies around the world. In doing so, students can interpret global political issues and events from different viewpoints, and advance their critical thinking, problem-solving and debating skills. The programme culminates in all our students taking on the role of delegate for an assigned country, and participating in a Model UN congress, held before an audience.

What You’ll Take Away

Our International Relations students will gain a deeper understanding of contemporary political and cultural issues, which will be particularly valuable should they wish to study International Relations, Politics or Law at university. In addition, students will develop several skills that are transferable to a wide range of professional and academic contexts. The ability to research and analyse from a variety of sources, together with developed interpersonal skills and the ability to think critically, are attributes that many universities and employers will look for.
