We have a small number of part-time places in any given year. The part-time course takes two years. Part-time MSc IR students normally take the compulsory paper, International Politics, and one option in year 1 and the second option and the 10,000-word Dissertation in year two.
Part-time MSc IR Research students normally take the compulsory papers, Theory of International Relations, and Foundations of Social Research, in year 1 and the optional paper and the 10,000-word Dissertation in year two. Lectures and seminars are normally held during office hours. However, as a part-time student, we would certainly be sensitive to your timetabling needs and, where a choice of seminar groups exists, we would allocate you to one that was most convenient to you.
Unfortunately the Sessional Timetable is not normally finalised until a few weeks before the start of the session, so we are unable to answer questions about the likely spread of teaching over the academic year before you make an application.
