About University of Reading,...
The Graduate Institute of Political and International Studies (GIPIS) at the University of Reading was established as the Graduate School of European and International Studies (GSEIS) in the mid-1960's, one of the leading multi-disciplinary centres of teaching and research in European and International Studies in the UK.
GIPIS has always had a very strong intake of international students, every year attracting at least 50 per cent of students from outside the UK. A significant number of our students continue their education at GIPIS immediately after their first degree, many joining us to advance a career they have already entered. The Institute's teaching and research covers important aspects of:
European Political and Economic Integration and Culture,
Strategy and Defence,
Arms Control and Non-Proliferation,
Security and Terrorism,
International Political Economy,
The Politics of Mediterranean Countries,
Africa and the Middle East, Asia-Pacific,
Political Theory and Public Ethics
Within the School there is a Seminar Series. The School and GIPIS maintain a regular programme of visiting speakers. They contribute expertise and cutting-edge research output in all areas of the study of politics and international studies, thus allowing students to expand their knowledge beyond their immediate area of studies.
