The School of Politics and International Relations is a truly cosmopolitan school; with a long standing commitment to excellence and innovation in teaching and research, a welcoming and supportive approach, and a broad range of partnerships with top institutions abroad, Kent offers an ideal environment for your postgraduate studies.
We pride ourselves on our global outlook, which is reflected in our wide range of international partnerships. We are the only politics and international relations school in the country with a postgraduate centre in Brussels, which allows students on some of our programme to follow part, or all, of their programme in Brussels. Agreements with partner institutions in Germany and Russia enable us to offer a Double Award version of the MA in International Relations, and a joint MA programme in Peace and Conflict Studies.
All of our one year programmes are available as a part-time option. Students wishing to study part-time will take three modules in the first academic year and will take three additional modules in the second academic year as well as complete a dissertation. Students should therefore expect to take one or two modules per term, which equates to 2-4 contact hours per week during term time.
Students are advised to take the compulsory modules in the first academic year where it is possible to do so but this is not mandatory.
