Course content

This programme provides an umbilical link between theory and practice, providing training in the concepts and applications of research appropriate for the study of diplomacy. You will learn in an environment tailor-made for the development of diplomatic skills at an inspiring new campus in London, one of the world’s greatest cities and home to 163 Embassies and High Commissions.

You will be provided with a specialised, systematic and in-depth knowledge of diplomacy deploying appropriate theories, concepts and methods associated with practice in the field. Our students are challenged to acquire a critical awareness of the New World Order and how this concept relates to current issues involved in the study of diplomacy, learning from the past to deal with the challenges of the future.
