By the end of the course you will be able to use the knowledge gained through a detailed study of diplomatic, intelligence and policy questions, and combine this with a high level of linguistic competence. This will enhance your ability as a presenter of information and as a mediator between communities. The course is designed to help you develop your professional specialism and enhance your skills within an appropriate conceptual framework.
You will normally be a graduate or have equivalent professional status. You must offer two languages, including English; you must be an habitual user or fluent in one language, and be capable of listening, speaking and reading in the other language to at least Council of Europe Level B2/C1. You must also demonstrate valid reasons for wishing to study the course, understanding of the nature and demands of the course and the conceptual and intellectual foundations needed to study at postgraduate level, and you may be invited to an interview. If English is not your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5 (or equivalent). The University offers pre-sessional summer courses if you need to improve your English before starting your course.
It has always been understood that operating effectively in an international environment requires good communicative ability. With the growth in global interaction, it is increasingly apparent that effective mediation and liaison skills require a combination of wide-ranging background knowledge, cultural sensitivity, and ability in two or more languages.
This course is designed for professionals working with languages in areas such as military liaison, diplomacy, security organisations and intergovernmental institutions. It is particularly suitable for specific interest groups such as defence and military attaches, peacekeeping officers, journalists, foreign correspondents, personnel from international agencies, and graduates aspiring to a career in international liaison and communication.
