  • Quality research-based teaching in a breadth of fields, with unique opportunities to engage with policy practitioners throughout the taught programme.
  • Unparalleled opportunity to study Russia and Eurasia in a world-spanning context, amidst King’s Global Institutes and drawing on King’s network of connections, including a wide range of academic links with Russian universities and academic organisations, as well as Russian and international businesses, government agencies, international organisations and others.
