How you'll learn
At Regent's you’ll have the freedom to explore your interests in a supportive and nurturing environment with interactive classes, regular one-to-one contact with tutors, specialist facilities, industry opportunities and tailored careers advice – ensuring you develop the skills, experience and confidence you need to succeed.
We centre our teaching around your individual goals, identifying support you need to thrive. You'll be part of a collaborative environment, that brings all the nuances of international relations to life in the classroom: facilitating entrepreneurship and teamwork as you explore current issues and propose solutions to real problems.
You’ll pair deep industry knowledge with hands-on experiences, taking part in a blend of learning formats to give your studies context:
- Seminars and lectures
- Practical workshops and field trips
- Case study analysis
- Distinguished guest lectures
- Industry placements
You’ll analyse historic events and current issues; explore the relationships between countries, states and international institutions; examine the internal structures of global organisations; develop policy strategies and solutions; and receive discounted memberships to international affairs organisations.
Based in London, you'll also have opportunities to meet employers through guest lectures, live briefs, field trips and industry visits – giving you insights into the world of international relations and enabling you to put theory into practice.
Contact hours – Term one: 12 hours per week, term two: 14 hours per week, term three: one hour per week while completing your consultation project or dissertation.
You'll be taught by a variety of business leaders and research-active academics, who have extensive experience working in international relations and related fields – from publishing work in journals to advising governments and the EU, chairing committees, consulting and contributing to media organisations like the BBC. Their knowledge and experience ensure your classes are shaped by the most current industry practices.
You'll also be allocated a personal tutor, who'll meet you on a one-to-one basis at various stages throughout the year to provide you with guidance and advice to support your personal and professional development.
We're really proud of the global nature of our business courses, and our tutors also reflect this ethos – coming from a wide variety of countries and cultures across the world. In every way, you'll feel part of a global family.
Throughout the course, you'll be expected to undertake extra reading, research, revision and reflection, as well as preparing work for workshops, and working collaboratively with other students in preparation for assessment.
