Program Overview

The M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy at the American Graduate School in Paris is a two-year program qualifying you for a broad range of careers in international affairs, from local governance to foreign affairs, to international development, human rights advocacy, global communications, international business, and many other areas involving interaction with different countries and cultures.

:A US-accredited Program in France:

The M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy at AGS combines the wide recognition of an American degree with the unique experience of a Paris-based program. It is accredited in the US as an affiliated program of Arcadia University (Pennsylvania) and taught at the American Graduate School in Paris, a private nonprofit institution of higher education recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education.

Classes are taught in the heart of Paris. The French capital – which is also one of Europe’s capitals and an international hub – is an ideal location for the study of international affairs. The program takes full advantage of this through guest speakers, site visits, and networking events. These all represent opportunities to get exposed to the international scene and make connections with the many diplomatic missions, intergovernmental organizations, and NGOs that the city hosts.

The language of instruction is English; no knowledge of French is required to enroll. You have the opportunity to learn French through AGS’s partner institution Alliance Française Paris-Ile de France.

:Expertise in International Affairs:

The program draws on AGS’s specific expertise in the field of international relations, in which the school has specialized since it was founded in 1994. At the core of this expertise, the faculty of the program is comprised of both accomplished scholars conducting research at the forefront of their discipline, and practitioners sharing their knowledge and professional experience, such as retired Ambassadors or government officials.

See AGS faculty - http://www.ags.edu/about-ags/faculty

The curriculum strikes a careful balance between academic thoroughness and practice-oriented approaches to fully prepare you for the professional arena. It examines the interaction between State and non-State actors at an international level through a multi-disciplinary scope covering political as well as cultural, historical, economic, geographical, social, legal, and humanitarian aspects, all updated to include the most current international issues.

Required courses cover the core subjects of international relations theory, economic policy, international public law, foreign policy formulation, and methodology. A broad rage of electives is available to explore other areas of international affairs such as NGO management, environment policy, gender issues, geopolitics, conflict resolution, and area studies.

See course catalog - http://www.ags.edu/international-relations/degree-programs/graduate-course-catalog

:A Multicultural Learning Environment:

A unique aspect of the program is the diversity of perspectives infused in the classroom, with students as well as faculty coming from many different national origins. This combined with the American-style interactive teaching methods, makes for an enriching and mind-opening class experience.

:Master’s thesis:

The program culminates in the completion of a Master’s thesis. Through the in-depth research and writing involved in the thesis process you will form a specialization in an area of your interest, as well as strengthen your ability to plan and complete a substantial project.

The thesis topic is elaborated in coordination with the Academic Committee and faculty advisors based on your area of interest and professional objectives.

:Foreign Policy component:

You may choose to include a foreign policy component in your thesis. This exercise will offer you the opportunity to apply the international relation theories and methods learned to construct new solutions to current international problems, thus leading to concrete solutions supported by solid academic research.

Degree Requirements

In order to obtain the degree of Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy, you must meet the following conditions:

- Successful completion of the curriculum (42 credits) with a minimum GPA of 3.0 (See curriculum details - http://www.ags.edu/international-relations/curriculum)
- Pre-intermediate level of French language by graduation (1 on the ALTE scale, A2 on the CEF scale French Language Proficiency Level Scale - http://www.ags.edu/international-relations/degree-programs/master-in-international-relations/798-french-language-proficiency-level-scale).
- Note : to help you meet this requirement, AGS offers optional French language courses with its partner institution Alliance Française Paris-Ile de France (more information here - http://www.ags.edu/international-relations/degree-programs/optional-french-language-courses).
- Research and writing of a 25,000 to 35,000-word thesis complying with the academic standards set forth by the school.

Program options

A range of options allows you to tailor the program around your particular interests and career objectives.


While in the Master’s program, you have the opportunity to perform an internship in a Paris-based organization: diplomatic/consular mission, intergovernmental organization, NGO, multinational corporation news media outlet or another type of relevant international institution.

Internships are optional and can be pursued either for credit (then counting as a an elective course in the curriculum) or not-for-credit. In all cases, you may benefit from AGS’s guidance and support for internship placement. (Note that in all cases, the student is ultimately responsible for finding his/her internship.)

:Area concentrations:

You may specialize in a particular sector of international affairs and obtain, in addition to your M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy, a Certificate of Concentration in your area of specialization. The requirements for this option consist of elective courses in the said area, directed readings, comprehensive exams, and an area-focused thesis.

Area Concentrations Available include:

- African Studies
- Asian Studies
- Middle Eastern Studies

:Dual degree options:

A number of dual program options with partner universities allow you to earn a second degree in a complementary discipline in addition to your US-accredited M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy:

- European accredited Master in Diplomacy and Strategic Negotiation (with Université Paris-Sud, Sceaux, France): more information here - http://www.ags.edu/international-relations/degree-programs/dual-program-in-international-relations-diplomacy-and-strategic-negotiation

- European accredited LL.M. in French and European Union Law and Business Ethics (with Université de Cergy-Pontoise, France): more information here - http://www.ags.edu/international-relations/degree-programs/dual-program-in-international-relations-and-international-law

US-accredited M.A. in Peace and Conflict Resolution (with Arcadia University, USA): more information here - http://www.ags.edu/dual-programs/international-relations-and-diplomacy-international-peace-and-conflict-resolution

:International opportunities:

You may spend one of the semesters of the M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy program abroad, studying at one of AGS's partner institutions while earning credits toward your AGS degree. Options include the United States (Arcadia University) and Italy (University of Siena). You may also spend the summer at UC Berkeley Extension, completing an additional module in leadership and management.

See more information - http://www.ags.edu/international-relations/international-opportunities

:Combined M.A.-Ph.D. program:

AGS offers a combined M.A.-Ph.D. program per the American model. The combined M.A.-Ph.D. program allows you to credit the required courses toward both degrees simultaneously. Ph.D. candidates having successfully completed their M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy at AGS would therefore be exempt from taking the required courses, and would only have to take seven elective courses for the Ph.D. program. Note that admission into the Ph.D. program is not automatic after obtaining the M.A.

Timeframe options

Full-time two-year track: the program is designed to be completed in two years on a full-time basis, involving nine to twelve hours of classes per week in addition to readings, assignments, and the research and writing of the thesis.

Accelerated 18-month intensive track: You have the option to complete the program in three semesters instead of four. You would then be required to take twelve to fifteen hours of classes per week.

Part-time track: EU students and other students who do not need to be enrolled on a full-time basis for visa purposes may undertake the program over a longer period of time on a part-time basis. This allows working professionals and other interested candidates to combine the program with other activities.

This programme will give you an unparalleled opportunity to study international education and globalisation, as they intersect, at master’s level.

International education and globalisation are challenging and contested concepts; in this programme you will analyse the meaning, scope and dimensions of international education and globalisation (as they intersect). You will also consider relevant educational purposes, methods and approaches in international education.

Importantly, you will engage in the critical analysis of the assumptions and evidence that underpin change and reform to policy and practice in international education.

The programme will provide cutting edge knowledge, skills and understandings at the intersection between the two fields of study so that you can make a significant future contribution to international education. For example, you will explore the implications of a shifting global educational landscape such as how to prepare learners for an increasingly connected and mobile global society.

You will be equipped to:

- critically analyse and apply research in the fields of international education and globalisation (as they intersect)
- undertake small scale research yourself.

Your prior educational experience will be valued as a source of evidence. You will be encouraged to analyse, share and build on these experiences as a basis for collective learning. As such we welcome students with a diversity of experience and interests, including those with:

- professional experience in formal or informal education, charities, non-governmental organisations or governmental organisations
- aspirations to pursue a career or research in international education and globalisation
- aspirations for promotion in international and global education contexts.

Programme features

- unique amongst master’s programmes in education, with a focus on the interrelationships between international education and globalisation

- a distinctive focus on bridge building between practice and theory throughout all elements of the programme

- an excellent way to develop your research skills or progress to doctoral level study

- prepares you to make a significant future contribution to practice and policy in international education

- will help you to fast track your career; the international education sector increasingly requires master’s level qualifications for promoted posts (completing this in 12 months is an efficient way to progress your career)

- you will have access to cutting edge research and international experts in the fields of international education and globalisation.

You can find out more about this programme by viewing a recording of a webinar (https://vimeo.com/155981301).

- tasks in which you communicate your learning via different media (such as webpages and podcasts) and in different styles depending on audience (disseminating to researchers, policymakers and practitioners for examples).


This programme will enable you to make a significant future contribution in the fields of international education and globalisation; we are committed to ensuring that you acquire a range of subject-specific and generic skills (including employability skills).

Our graduates will go on to work in a wide variety of education-related careers, such as:

- teaching or lecturing in international education contexts (such as international colleges and schools, English medium schools, schools in low and middle income countries)
- teacher education posts worldwide
- leadership roles in international education or globalisation

Examine the complexities and processes involved in world affairs.

The relationships between states, international institutions, international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) and non-state operators are explored and analysed extensively.

You will take an interdisciplinary approach to your studies, integrating historical examples and theories from areas such as international relations, international political economy, sociology, psychology and history.

Why should I choose this programme?

We believe there are five essential elements to gaining the best possible postgraduate education in international relations and having the most rewarding student experience.

‌•An unmatched international character
‌•An unrivalled central London location
‌•An enriching and unique education
‌•An inspiring academic team
‌•A breadth of subject expertise
‌•All of this, combined with the small-feel atmosphere that characterises the study experience at Regent’s, provides the perfect environment to study your MA International Relations.

An unmatched international character

There is no better place to study international relations than Regent’s. Our tight-knit community of less than 4,000 students is made up of over 140 nationalities. To preserve this unique breadth of diversity, our admissions policy ensures that no single nationality is ever over-represented on campus.

Regent’s is a genuine microcosm of the world, offering a live example of effective international relations and cultural integration, with unequalled opportunities to establish your own networks. Intercultural intelligence is at the heart of our education, irrespective of the subject. You will find that everyone at Regent’s is interested in international relations, not just your peers in the classroom.

An unrivalled central London location

London is a global hub for international relations. It is home to the headquarters of many of the world’s most important international organisations, think-tanks, and charities, as well as university research groups. We offer the best of both worlds: a location in the heart of bustling central London, with all these resources at your disposal, in a beautiful private campus situated in the middle of royal Regent’s Park. There is nowhere in London or the UK that matches our Park Campus.

An enriching and unique education

Formal classroom-based learning is only one part of the overall package at Regent’s. An important part of your education is enrichment. Our MA International Relations includes a programme of guest lectures from high-profile experts who share their practical expertise and speakers from specific industries to allow you to establish important links to the world of work in the areas that interest you most.

Our students participate in the global Model United Nations conference in New York every year and have won many awards internationally. Our MA includes full ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) training which is based on our well-known executive mediation courses from which famous alumni such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu have graduated. Our Human Rights module is run in association with the Humanitarian Conference in Geneva, which you will attend and participate in.

Outside of your formal studies, you will have the opportunity to meet your personal Careers Advisor in your first week on campus. Your Advisor can provide ongoing support with your leadership development, employability, professionalism, entrepreneurialism, and career management skills.

An inspiring academic team

As well as helping to shape domestic and foreign policy, our team of inspiring lecturers lead key international debates and are regular commentators in the media, including BBC TV, BBC Radio, CNN, NBC, CBC, CBC Australia, World Today, Haaretz, Al Arabiya, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, The Independent, France 24, LBC TV and LBC Radio. Our academic team has strong connections with Chatham House, Human Rights Watch and the Council of Europe, and other key organisations in the area of international relations.

Our focus is on developing your leadership potential too. Our University mission statement is ‘Developing tomorrow’s global leaders’, and our MA International Relations aims to empower you to become a leader in your community, domestically and internationally.

A breadth of subject expertise

While our flagship MA International Relations retains the small-feel atmosphere that characterises the study experience at Regent's, our expertise covers a broad range of areas, including but not limited to: international relations theory; diplomacy, war and conflict resolution; strategy and complexity; human rights; US foreign policy; the Middle East; Latin America; Africa; the European Union; migration and refugees; human trafficking; gender; international political economy; global health; humanitarian issues; nationalism; advanced research methods; and energy and environment.

This program is available on the Grenoble campus

The program is aimed at students wishing to pursue an international management career in a global context and:

- Acquire a specific knowledge and the understanding needed to work in HRM in an international context and to contribute to its development
- Experience a unique learning environment in working with people from different nationalities, culture and academic backgrounds and sharing the same interest in international people management
- Acquire an understanding of global business and culture and extend their international network.

The mission of the MSc International Human Resource Management and Organizational Development is to build the abilities and skills necessary for future managers to recruit, manage and enhance talent while facilitating change in multicultural and international environments. The program provides an understanding of the approach to handling international human resource management operations and the differences in international and domestic HRM.

Through a blending of theory and practice, using case studies and applied learning, students will develop the competencies to understand the HR issues facing business today and positively impact organizational structure and dynamics.

The MSc International Human Resource Management and Organizational Development focuses on the human resource and organizational issues facing companies that operate in the global market. It aims to train managers able to contribute to corporate performance and social responsibility through the effective management of the company's most valuable asset: its men and women.


"The MSc in International Human Resource Management and Organizational Development combines theoretical knowledge with a strong technical and practical orientation to enable students to master key operational know-how and soft skills. Students will be able to apply this knowledge to decision-making in HR and organizational development within different geographical contexts. The program has an international focus, as an ever-increasing globalization of business impacts HRM.

Program delivery relies on a mixture of pedagogical methods and techniques from traditional to interactive lectures, e-learning activities, readings, exercises, case studies, presentations, simulations, individual and multicultural team-based work.

Students will also experiment a course based on a new pedagogy: serious games.

The Final Management Project - a supervised research paper of 20,000 words - allows students to become experts in an HR-related topic of their choice covering not only technical concepts, but also professional practices and implications."

Sabine Lauria


The program explores how HR strategy fits into overall corporate strategy, the key differences between International Human Resource Management (IHRM) and domestic HRM, and the skills required to recruit, manage and enhance talent. It is designed for graduates who wish to pursue management careers at national and international levels.

Participants will develop the know-how and competencies to identify and understand the HR issues facing business today and develop appropriate strategies to ensure that effective people management strategies create competitive advantage and sources of value.

In addition to the core courses, students can attend personal and professional development workshops. These workshops cover current topics of interest, recent trends in management and career development. They serve as a complement to the core modules.


Students will select a company with international business located in different national culture. The purpose is to evaluate the impact of organization design on human resources roles and responsibilities. The objective is to gather public and internal information to develop their own analysis of the situation.

The program encourages effective teamwork as the major part of modules expects students to work in groups. These groups will consist of students of different nationalities and rhythms, as some students attend courses part-time.


A research techniques module has been created to provide the skills required to effectively work on the Final Management Projects and on future professional projects.


The second year of the program is dedicated to the Final Management Project, a written work of approximately 20,000 words, conducted under the supervision of a tutor from GGSB. Students will choose an aspect of International HR Management and are encouraged to link the chosen subject matter to their future career. The project can be completed in parallel with full-time employment or an internship based in France or abroad.


Operating in an international environment requires foreign language fluency and therefore a foreign language module is an option on the program for all students.

Non-French speakers may study French (beginner to advanced level). This option is highly advised for those who are looking to become professionals in France. French speakers may choose from a number of other languages at beginner level.


Graduates of this MSc program will be qualified for posts in both multinational corporations and companies experiencing rapid expansion in international markets.

Graduates may equally enter the consulting field in the areas of HR and organizational development.


This postgraduate MSc program is open to both young and mature graduates from any field and with no or limited work experience. Candidates should have excellent interpersonal skills, good oral and communication written skills and a strong motivation for international relations and business.

You can focus on either International Management or Law. The project is supported by a class in project methodology.

Work placement

This course includes a number of elective classes for you to choose from. If you're interested in studying abroad, the Managing in Europe elective class provides the opportunity to do this with classes taught at Toulouse Business School, France.

Collaborative learning

The MSc in International Management & Law is designed to be a collaborative learning experience. It's a partnership between academic staff and students, and between students from different cultural backgrounds. Working together allows those involved to build upon their collective understanding in interrogating, at an advanced level, the global issues impacting organisations.

Course content

Semester 1
The MSc in International Management & Law begins with an introduction to the Management Development Programme. During this introduction, it's impressed on you that you're responsible for developing both your knowledge and skills and that you should approach your studies as active learners. This introduction is complemented by an Integrated Skills Workshop which focuses on your personal approach to learning and managing themselves.

The core Law class in the first semester is the Law of International Business. It introduces you to the concepts underpinning the regulation of businesses. It will explain the different types of business entities and introduce you to company and corporate law concepts.

In this semester the core International Management class is Managing Across Cultures. This class will help you develop an awareness, knowledge and understanding of the importance of the often overlooked 'soft skills' of management, particularly as concerns cross-cultural variations and their impact on the practices and processes of management. It'll examine the main concepts currently employed to understand the complexity presented to managers in their process of managing people across national and cultural borders, addressing the issues of the impact of culture on management structures and processes. It will then provide understanding of the role which cross-cultural management can play in achieving competitive advantage in international business.

Semester 2
The programme then leads into two core classes. The first is in International Management, namely Global Business Environment. This class is designed to inspire you with the platform of knowledge and understanding on the economic, institutional and socio-cultural contexts which form the background to International Management.

The core Law class is Comparative Law of Obligations. This will consider obligations law in the context of different constitutional arrangements around the world. It will include material on delict/torts, contract and restitution in countries including the UK, Australia, Canada, the EU, the USA and China and also some material on the law of obligations in the Islamic tradition.

Upon completion of the compulsory classes and towards the end of the taught programme, you choose elective classes, allowing you to explore a range of topics. Students enrolled on the MSc in International Management & Law will be able to choose classes from a shared pool of international, general management and law topics available.

Semester 3
The project class rounds off the programme in the third and final semester. This provides you with an opportunity to explore at length and in depth some aspects of theory or methods, knowledge or skills introduced on the taught element of the programme. The project is supported by a class in project methodology. At this stage of the programme you may be interested in aligning career aspirations with project work.

Learning & teaching

Modes of learning include lectures, seminars, workshops, case studies, expert guest lecturers, self-study exercises, project work, and individual study and research. Individual class specifications detail the objectives, learning outcomes and content for each core module of the programme, with a breakdown of teaching methods and forms of assessments used.

There's a strong theme throughout the core classes of ongoing transferable skills development, including team-work, problem-solving, data handling and analytical skills, evaluation skills and written and oral communication. Particularly, the consulting in practice class provides you with professional, highly-transferable skills including leadership, project management, decision-making and negotiation.


All core classes in the programme include coursework as an element of final assessment. Other methods of assessment are also used, appropriate to the focus of the class, including group and individual project work, presentations and online assessed exercises. Relative weighting of coursework and other assessment methods vary from class to class.

The dissertation or project will be assessed by in-depth project evaluation reports, supervisor feedback reports and a critical reflection of professional and personal skills.

The MSc International Management and Leadership was designed to be a vibrant and innovative course that focuses on best practice in management and leadership while developing an international focus. QMU’s mission is ‘to enhance the wellbeing of individuals and the communities we serve through socially and economically relevant education and research’. The MSc reflects this mission through its underpinning and distinctive identity which focuses not only on contemporary management practice but also on community engagement and service. A unique aspect of the course is the replacement of the traditional dissertation with a student-led project. You will design, lead and reflect upon a project attached to a community, charity, or third sector enterprise. The context chosen for these projects reflects our staff’'s opinion that the responsibility of our graduates as managers and leaders extends not just to boardrooms and shareholders, but also to communities and our wider society.

The MSc International Management and Leadership with Events route was added to enhance the knowledge and skills of those interested in a leadership role within a public or private organisation. Events have become a key tool for both organisers and participants to network, promote, and sell their products and services. Their popularity and scale around the world means that individuals with the knowledge, skills, and ability to lead in this field are in high-demand by private companies and public organisations seeking managers capable of helping them to achieve their goals in this fast growing and dynamic industry. Throughout this programme there will be an emphasis on developing a wide range of managerial skills that are aligned with QMU’s extensive knowledge of current issues in events management.

We have found the best way to learn about our business courses and the underpinning ethos and differences that drive us is to speak to members of the team that will work with you. We are delighted to arrange a visit or invite you to attend a class, giving you the opportunity to speak to Masters students about their experiences. If you are based outside the UK then you may wish to SKYPE one of the programme team and we can discuss your questions face to face.

Teaching, learning and assessment

You will attend lectures and seminars, work in groups and carry out independent learning. You will be expected to participate in discussions, develop ideas and engage with experiential learning. Assessment methods will include management reports, essays, web-based discussions, reflections on practice and group work with presentations. A central part of the course experience is the regular involvement with industry, through specific visits, guest speakers and events all of which provide valuable insights into practice, contemporary trends and thinking. Class sizes are normally 10-30.

Teaching hours and attendance

Modules studied on campus require you to attend classes and carry out independent work. Attendance requirements at QMU will depend on which module you are studying and whether you are full or part-time. In most instances the taught elements of the full-time course occur on Tuesday, Wednesday (AM) and Thursday. Part-time students have the option to
select different modules each year.

The MBA International Management is a state-of-the-art MBA program that prepares managers and future leaders for working in a complex multicultural world. Read more

Course Description

The MBA International Management is a state-of-the-art MBA program that prepares managers and future leaders for working in a complex multicultural world. It targets German and international candidates with a non-business degree but offers enough depth for business degree holders seeking to further refine and strengthen their education. Candidates should have a successfully completed first academic degree, at least two years of professional work experience as well as an excellent English proficiency level.

The idea is to provide students with an excellent foundation of International Management knowledge and skills while at the same time providing them with the opportunity to choose two of four elective courses and specialize in a regional market. At the core of the curriculum lies the imparting of knowledge on current business theory and practice by the use of modern teaching methods as well as the continuous transfer of real-world applications. Furthermore, the program covers the area of Social and Self Competence. In this way, students are provided with a toolbox of executive and leadership skills that every modern leader should possess.

Studying at MBS

As with all study programs at Munich Business School (MBS), small and highly diverse workgroups as well as an intimate study and discussion atmosphere create the optimal learning environment. This allows our students to interact closely and collaborate productively with their class mates and lecturers. Current business and management topics in a well-rounded curriculum full of real-life applications are taught by a dedicated faculty using modern teaching methods and an interdisciplinary approach.

Program Structure

The MBA International Management (MBA IM) is divided into three terms over a period of 15 months. Each term covers topics from the three major modules Business & Management Knowledge, Executive & Leadership Skills, and International Business Environment. This effective modular structure is the basis for a challenging and compact MBA program, which allows its completion in less than one and a half years – thus minimizing the time our students spend putting their professional careers on hold.

MBA students receive in-class instruction on business topics and executive skills during Terms 1 and 2. In addition, they can choose two of four elective courses. Choices are: Management in Emerging Markets or Digital Business Transformation in the Fall term as well as Social Entrepreneurship or Global Supply Chain Management in the Spring term. Furthermore, they choose one of three International Focuses: Germany and Europe, Latin America, or China. In Term 3, students can opt for an International Immersion studying one semester abroad. Alternatively, they can also choose a Practical Immersion (internship or international consulting project) combined with an international week. Depending on their practical business experience, students may be eligible to waive the practical or international immersion in Term 3. This so-called Fast Track reduces the overall study time to a total of twelve months.

The Master Thesis at the end of the program demonstrates the students‘ profound understanding of current business topics and the ability to apply specific scientific methods to a real-world business situation. The topic will be chosen in collaboration with a company. Therefore, the knowledge and research presented in the thesis are valuable for both the student and their company.

International or Practical Immersion

Internationality and practical relevance are two of the core values of The Munich MBA. This is why MBA students can use Term 3 to choose an individual immersion corresponding to their personal needs. International immersion: Students can extend their international experience by studying abroad at one of our over 50 partner universities worldwide. Practical immersion: Students, who would like to immerse themselves into the practical application of their newly acquired knowledge, may either complete an nternship or a global consulting project. In addition, they will spend an international week at a selected partner university.

A Typical MBA IM Class at MBS

When carefully selecting the candidates for our MBA International Management program, we pay very close attention to putting together a diverse yet cohesive group of students. Be it through their academic backgrounds, their personal experiences or their professional paths – we want to create the best possible opportunities for our MBA students in terms of networking potential and mutual enrichment.

The MBS Best Scholarship

Munich Business School offers a limited number of partial scholarships to outstanding candidates applying for The Munich MBA (up to 25% off the first two semester tuition rates). Selection criteria for the MBS Best Scholarship for outstanding candidates include the following: outstanding educational achievements, professional background, high GMAT scores, international work experience, foreign language skills, social engagement, candidates’ performance throughout the selection process.

Our next intake of the MAEdi for 2016/7, will now start in August 2016, when we will offer the taught modules on a residential basis at Keele University in the UK.

The MA Education (International) (MEdi) is a flexible, part-time, semi-distance learning programme. It is accredited, validated, taught and assessed by Keele University, UK. The course is designed for those working in international schools and similar organisations. The aim is to broaden teachers’ knowledge, understanding and skills within their own professional setting. The programme has a clear practical focus, underpinned by theory and which provides participants with an opportunity to develop their professional comptence and enhance their capacity to engage in critically reflective practice as advanced educational professionals.

The MA Ed (Int) is particularly innovative because it links different modes of study, which comprise:
- modularised coursework undertaken on a part-time, distance-learning basis.
- work-based research related to experience and professional interests.
- content suitable for all curriculums (Including IB, AP, and the National Curriculum of England and Wales).
- residential programme sessions (in the UK) which provide opportunities for participants to review, discuss and challenge ideas but
also to share good practice.

This prestigious MAEdi can be accessed by any international school teacher working in any country. The only attendance requirement for Year 2 Entry applicants will be a five-day residential held at Keele University, UK in early August. The remainder of the programm is by distance learning. The programme is also suitable for British state school teachers seeking a qualification directly relevant to international schooling and education.


• All units are delivered by Keele University staff, experienced in international schooling/ education and educational research.

• Taught elements hosted at Keele University (UK) in early August (5 day residential). Remainder of the programme delivered by distance learning with tutor support.

Course Aims

The educational aims of the programme are to support the development of critically reflective practitioners, whose work is based on scholarship, professionalism and ethical practice. It will enable participants to critically examine a wide range of contemporary educational issues and those that relate more directly to their own practice as educators. A key aim is to provide opportunities for participants to examine their own professional contexts and interests in the light of theory and practical experience.

By the end of the programme participants will demonstrate systematic knowledge and critical awareness of a range of educational theories and issues that are relevant to the specific pathway, which could include creativity, critical pedagogy, leadership and management and pedagogical content knowledge; they will demonstrate that they can critically examine these theories in the light of practice and vice versa. Participants will show how, through this critically reflective approach, they have developed their own practice as educators and managed personal and professional change. They will be able to communicate effectively through use of higher level writing skills, aimed at specialist and non-specialist audiences, with appropriate use of academic referencing

They will develop critical awareness of the philosophies and practices underpinning Educational research and demonstrate that they can design and undertake an independent research study into aspects of their own practice or professional context and report the findings of that study to a range of audiences.

The opportunities that this MAEdi offers for career progression in the rapidly expanding world of international education are many. Most of our Asia Programme graduates go on to be appointed to higher levels of management and leadership in international education and schooling and we can provide numerous personal testimonies as to the value of the Keele Programmes from our alumni. With international schools becoming increasingly corporatized and commercially orientated, those educationalists awarded the Keele MEdi can look forward to enhanced careers; equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful practitioners in international education.

Course Content

The MA Education (international) programme is a part-time, semi distance learning programme:

Year 1 entry: PGCEi (60 MA credits)
Modules: Learners, Learning and Assessment; International Educational Practice; Creative Practice.

Year 2 entry: Postgraduate Diploma in International Education (60 MA credits)
Modules: Towards a Personalised Curriculum; Global Educational Issues; Research Methods.

Year 3 entry: MA Education (International) (60 MA credits – dissertation only).

Taught Modules:
- Towards a Personalised Curriculum (15 credits): UK residential
This module will undertake a critical examination of the construction of the curriculum. What are the purposes of the school curriculum? Who is it for? What is it for? Who designs it? It will also examine issues of power and control, and contrast these ideas with concepts of emancipation/liberation. The sociology of the curriculum will also be examined.

- Global Educational Issues (15 credits): UK residential
This module explores the changing world of international education, especially the expansion and corporatisation of international schools in Asia. It reflects on the ‘nature’ of international identity, both for teachers and students, and critically explores what it means to be ‘international’ in an educational context.

- Research Methods (30 credits): distance learning
This module is a necessary introduction to research and deals with research methods, concepts and issues, offering guidance about how to approach research so as to maximise benefits while minimising problems.


The Masters in Education International is a post experience, semi-distance learning programme. The UK based residentials comprise a mixture of lectures, workshops, and small group tasks that are key parts of the course, which not only provide opportunities for participants to review, discuss and challenge ideas but also to share good practice. All subsequent modules are via semi-distance learning.

Further support is provided through modular self-study materials, which comprise both traditional text based and digital resources that are accessed through the KLE; this latter resource is also used to enhance student support and provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion of issues that arise.

A particularly innovative feature of the programme is the opportunity that is provided through the Postgraduate certificate phase of the programme to obtain an award that confirms teaching competence.

To obtain this award participants must complete a 12-week teaching placement module in the international school in which they are employed.

The programme team includes very experienced teacher educators who have responsibility for the provision of the suite of postgraduate education programmes in the School of Public Policy and Professional Practice. They all have formal teaching qualifications and extensive teaching experience in secondary schools across the UK and internationally; they also have substantial experience of teaching on both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.


The academic programme is assessed through written work in the form of essays, case studies and critical reflective reviews; the use of these forms of assessment enables judgements to be made about participants knowledge and understanding of module content and their capacity to critically examine theory in the light of practice and vice versa.

The research proposal and dissertation, which comprise the Masters phase of the programme, enable the assessment of participants’ ability to select, apply and evaluate appropriate research methodologies for their chosen individual study.

The assessment of the Teaching Placement module is structured around an adapted version of the Teaching Standards for England. To satisfy these standards participants must provide evidence of their ability to plan, deliver and assess lessons that are focused on student learning. They also need to compile a portfolio of evidence that supports their case for achieving the standards and complete a critically reflective commentary that draws on the evidence in the portfolio.

Formative assessment in the programme takes a variety of forms, it includes the completion of preparatory tasks for the taught sessions that are used as the basis for discussion, on-line tasks that are used to consolidate or extend the work that has been undertaken in the taught sessions and short presentations that are developed either as individual tasks or from small group discussions.

These activities provide module tutors with opportunities to assess participants level of understanding and engagement, evidence that can subsequently be used during taught sessions to adapt or revise session plans or as the basis for tutorial discussions.
