Applications are now open for two Departmental scholarships available for our MA International Relations, MA International Security and MA International Relations (Distance Learning) course.

Applicants for all scholarships will need to hold an offer before submitting their scholarship application form.

The scholarship competition is open to any of the following:

1. An international student who is intending to study on either the MA International Relations or the MA International Security. This will be worth the value of home/EU student fees (£7,500) with the remaining balance of £7,600 to be paid by the scholarship holder themselves. This is open to students intending to start their course in September 2020.

2. A home/EU student who is intending to study on either the MA International Relations or the MA International Security. This will cover 100% of the tuition fees (£7,500) and is open to full-time or part-time students intending to start their course in September 2020.

3. A student who is intending to study on the MA International Relations (Distance Learning). This will cover 100% of the tuition fees (£7,500) and is open to full-time or part-time students intending to start their course in September 2020.

An application form for the two scholarships is available from Laura Crofts: lcrofts@brookes.ac.uk and must be returned by 23:59 on Friday 5 June 2020.

Please note: the scholarships do not cover the living costs of studying in Oxford on the MA International Relations and MA International Security. Guidelines on how much you should expect to spend on your living costs can be found here.

Our postgraduate students benefit from being taught by a team of research-active scholars who publish in their areas of expertise. The MA International Relations (Distance Learning) provides a range of interactive materials to enable students to critically engage with each other and staff, thereby allowing them to enjoy the flexibility that is afforded through online study.

In addition to the taught modules, students on both the MA International Relations and the MA International Security also get the opportunity to go on a four-day study tour to Brussels and The Hague. Travel and accommodation for this trip are included in your fees, and this includes visits to key institutions of the European Union and a range of international organisations, such as the International Criminal Court and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. This trip enables students to get a first-hand experience of how these important international institutions work.
