Diplomacy and International Relations degree offered at Lancaster University aims to help students to realise their academic potential, by encouraging choice and independence in their studies. Based on the distance learning pedagogical principles, it employs a wide variety of online learning tools to enhance students’ learning experience.
The programme is delivered entirely online and begins in early October, with an online orientation session conducted through a virtual learning environment (VLE) and web conferencing system. This introduces students to course tutors, familiarises students with the requirement of the programme and online learning tools and resources (eg VLE, discussion forum, e-library etc.)
The programme consists of five taught distance learning modules and a dissertation. For each module, learning activities consist of compulsory key readings, lecture podcasts, as well as participation in presentation, web seminars and online discussion forums. The programme has proved very popular and we recommend you submit your application and all supporting documentation as early as possible.
