The Master in International Relations and Asian Studies is especially aimed at students interested in mastering the various knowledge, techniques and skills related to international relations, both political and economic. Students must also be motivated to perfect their command of the English language, since part of the subjects and seminars will be taught in this language. Also, they will have to make presentations in this language for which they will receive specific training. Someone who wants to develop their professional career in the field of international relations must at least be fluent in English, but also must be open to the learning of other Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese or Hindi since it will substantially increase their employability.
In order to gain access to the master’s degree, candidates must have a B-2 level of English according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) or have completed at least 18 credits of English applied to their field of knowledge.
