University of Aberdeen
Students should have a good 1st degree or its equivalent in politics, international relations or a related discipline. 2 academic references are required. Applicants who have been educated in the medium of English are still required to meet the English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that applicants meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. Applicants who are in doubt about their proficiency in English should contact the British Council office or its equivalent in their country. For applicants whose 1st language is not English, it is important that their proficiency in English is good in order for them to study successfully at the University.
The programme has 4 modules: theories and issues (30 credits); research design, data and presentation (30 credits); qualitative research methods in politics and international relations (30 credits); quantitative methods in political science and international relations (30 credits); a supervised dissertation of 12,000 words is undertaken on an agreed topic (for potential PhD students this is usually an early consideration of their selected field). (60 credits).
The course modules that constitute the programme are assessed on the basis of the continuous assessment of the component assignments (essays, presentations, projects, etc) and the dissertation.
