Learning

Outline

Are you ready to handle the truth? Our International Relations course aims to uncover it. We’ll discuss a range of topics, from where nationalism comes from, to whether states ever act for the common good and look at theoretical approaches to international relations. We’ll also explore global issues such as the difference between preventing and preempting war and closely analyse specific conflicts for a bigger picture view on our world, its successes and its biggest threats.

Teaching methodology

Learn the Oxford way with tutorial style teaching. Your expert tutor will foster self-directed learning and critical thinking through interactive seminars in small groups (no bigger than 8). During your course, you will complete two pieces of independent work (essays or problem sheets), which your tutor will then evaluate in either a 1:1 or 2:1 tutorial. Tutorials will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your work and feedback with your tutor and learn new perspectives from your classmates. On completion of the course, you’ll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.

The Experience

It’s all about balance. Study with us at Cambridge and we’ll help you embrace everything the city has to offer – from socialising with new friends with shared interests to field trips and excursions for practical lessons you just can’t learn from a textbook. We understand students. We make sure you’re stimulated with a social calendar that packs it all in, from traditional guided tours of the University museums to a tranquil afternoon punting on the River Cam.

And of course, you’ll experience the true Cambridge way of life from weekly formal dinners to competitive debating and croquet. Remember to save some energy for dancing the night away at a disco!
