Months of entry
This version of the International Relations programme offers the opportunity to study at the prestigious Higher School of Economics in Moscow and obtain two Master's degrees. You spend the first year at Kent and the second year in Moscow. Courses in Moscow are taught in English.
The main goal of this programme is to link the general study of international relations to specific questions about Eurasia in world politics and the international economy. In the post-Cold War world in which the tectonic plates of international relations are shifting, the programme provides a unique, critical perspective on traditional approaches to studying international relations and conventional accounts of East-West relations.
Students will receive high-quality teaching from eminent scholars both at Kent and the HSE in Moscow who are internationally renowned experts on international relations, Eurasian politics and the world economy. In addition to unique modules and a dissertation offering the opportunity to conduct original research, the programme also encompasses an internship (during the second year in Moscow) and other possibilities for work placements.
This is a unique programme that equips students not only with superb analytical skills but also specialised knowledge and invaluable cross-cultural experiences.
