About

Students undertaking Masters by Research, Diplomacy and International Relations at the Academy of Diplomacy and International Governance from Loughborough University London will gain specialist knowledge and relevant skills for research on various aspects of the practice of diplomacy and international governance.

Overview

From September 2017, Loughborough University London will be delivering six new multidisciplinary MRes programmes, to enable students with a passion for research to widen their skills, focus their interests and take the next step towards an MPhil, PhD or analytical career.

Studying an MRes with Loughborough University London will give you a fascinating introduction into the life of a postgraduate researcher. Each MRes programme has been carefully designed to empower graduates with rigorous research and analytical skills, in order to progress onto highlevel researcher positions within their chosen sector or field.

Each programme will explore the research processes, and uncover the designs, practices and methodologies used by experienced researchers from each discipline. Whilst a traditional taught master’s degree programme focuses on the development of expertise in a chosen area, an MRes places more emphasis on the individual to uncover new knowledge and develop their own research expertise.
Career Prospects:
Research skills are greatly in demand across the high value industries of the UK. Alongside the taught elements of the Diplomacy and International Relations programme you will be able to access a tailor-made professional development programme mapped to the Researcher Framework that will support you to market yourself and your skills for a rewarding career. You will get access to: Exclusive workshops on diverse topics suitable for a research career, Mentoring, Employability Profiling and Careers Support
