MA International Studies and Diplomacy
This MA was perfect in that not only did it provide “what it says on the tin”, a theoretical and practical training in diplomatic activity, but also was a great opportunity to meet with an extraordinary diverse group of students and lecturers in a privileged environment. I gained academic and personal skills which I am now using on a day-to-day basis in my professional activities.
I took the International Economics module as a bit of a challenge, having never studied economics before… and it was. I believe that when Stephanie Blankenburg, lecturer of the course, in my first meeting with her, asked what it was I did not understand, my response was ‘everything’! But International Economics soon became my favourite module precisely because it gave me an understanding of very current and important economic issues. As Stephanie promised, I can now read the Financial Times!
