Global Affairs MA

University of Buckingham
Education level: Master's degree
Location: Buckingham
Language: English

Program description

The aim of this professional training programme - the only one of its kind in the UK - is to prepare graduates for rapid advancement into high-powered senior professional work in the following areas: financial and commercial institutions, serious international journalism, trade and industry, global civil society (including non-governmental organisations), foreign ministries and international organisations.

The programme is also suitable for those without a particular career aim in mind but who wish to acquire an advanced understanding of global affairs.

The programme is based on four areas of study: international law; global economics and finance; global governance, and the evolution of the global system. Other more specific related subjects are also considered (including, for example, security studies and environmental issues).

The courses, which are taught intensively through lectures and small group tutorials, assume little prior knowledge and rapidly bring students to an advanced level of understanding.

Admission requirements

Entry requirements for MA programmes:

Normally, you will be required to have:
- A good honours degree from a UK university or an equivalent academic qualification from an overseas institution
- Appropriate work experience will also be taken into account in assessing an applicant’s suitability for the programme.
- If English is not your first language, an IELTS score of 6.5 or computer-based TOEFL score of 233+.

Because teaching takes place in small group tutorials the
number of students admitted to the courses is
necessarily limited.
