MA International Studies and Diplomacy

Studying at CISD of SOAS was an unforgettable experience. "Thinking Globally, Acting Globally", the MA in International Studies and Diplomacy programme has enabled me to interact with various academics and practitioners in international politics and economics. It has broadened my vision and equipped me with many frontier professional skills. CISD is a unique place where the West meets the East. Wherever you are from, you could feel that you are welcomed, accepted, and appreciated.

Global Energy and Climate Policy

I didn’t take GECP as one of my three choices on program modules at the very beginning. But I changed my mind after the introduction class, and finally my decision was proved absolutely right. What I have learnt from the course is beyond my expectations. It has sparked my interest in energy and security, deepened my understanding about environmental governance, and trained my ability in climate change negotiation. I also appreciate Harald Heubaum and Ian Shields for their great lecturing and tutoring. Like all other CISD administrators and lecturers, they are always there ready to help!
