How will I study?

You are assessed via unseen written examinations, presentations, and a term paper. In addition, you’ll write a 15,000-word dissertation supervised by faculty.

Internship

This MSc has an internship variant. This allows you to take a three-month internship break for an approved purpose such as a placement in an international organisation or a research assistant post in a university.

The registration period for the MSc is then lengthened by three months. If you are interested in the MSc with an internship, you should apply for the standard MSc as described here and may be transferred to the MSc with an internship after starting the standard MSc.
