Comments about Master of International Relations - On Campus - Robina - Queensland

  • Objectives
    The Master of International Relations is innovative, forward-looking and attuned to the dynamics of the globalising world and its multiple diplomatic channels. Students will find the programs not just practical but also rigorous in providing a sound knowledge base for each area of study, and in providing grounding in contemporary, theoretical and cultural issues. Students will engage in simulations, think-tank and scenario exercises with practical experience of the subject gained through in-country experience, internships or institutional (eg. UN) visits.
  • Practical experience
    Work experience and Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.
  • Entry requirements
    Completion of an undergraduate degree program at an approved institution with at least a major in International Relations or similar and normally with a record of performance at Credit (65%) level or better, subject to the decision of the Dean.
