Student Feature – Just Graduated? Why Not Try a Masters in IR

For a lot of students, it’s that time of the year … graduation! It can be daunting figuring out whether to continue in education or to enter the job market. However, if you do fancy a shot at a graduate/Masters program there are several resources we can point you to. For those U.S. bound the following link of top IR grad schools might be useful, and also this one from Foreign Policy. For a more global overview, see here and here. Also, E-IR’s academic advertisers are all seeking Masters students for International Relations courses – so why not give them look-in also: Australian National University; Aberystwyth University; Cardiff University; Sheffield Hallam University; and the University of Queensland.

Wherever you end up in the coming year, best of luck and we hope you stay tuned to the website! We have a lot of resources here that will help you as you study further, including our student portal, and of course our wide range of open access scholarly books – all free to download.

If you have any other good links to share to your global peer group, please do add them via the comments facility below.

Finally, if you are entering a PhD this year, you can also test out your formative ideas by entering E-IR’s article award, with a $1000 prize on offer and the chance of publication it’s certainly worth a shot!
