The MIR Programme provides students with advanced training, by way of one year of coursework, practical work experience (internship) and an academic dissertation, in the general methods, scope, theories, and findings in the field of International Relations. It gives a systematic preparation for original postgraduate research or for a demanding international career; and it constitutes a programme of training for those who have graduated in other fields and wish to transfer to International Relations.
Successful completion of mandatory academic coursework and practical work experience thanks to the GSD Internship Programme will earn the MIR student 60 European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) credit points. The remaining 30 ECTS credits points, out of a total of 90 ECTS required, include a significant independent research project (Masters dissertation).
Applicants must hold a Bachelor degree. Whilst we accept applications from all varieties of undergraduate majors, a prior degree in international relations, history, social sciences, etc. will be an ideal preparation to commence your MIR studies at GSD.As the language of instruction is English, you need to submit a proof of your language proficiency.
No work experience is required.
