Find out what current students say about the course in this introductory video.

The Master of Studies (MSt) in International Relations is a part-time course designed for mature students from, for example, industry, teaching, the civil service or the armed forces, but we also welcome recent graduates wishing to undertake postgraduate study. The MSt has been developed by the Department of Politics and International Studies in association with the Institute of Continuing Education and provides a two-year, part time route to a full Cambridge Master's degree.

Please note that as a part-time course, students are not eligible for a student visa and therefore those who are not eligible to remain in the UK, will require a short term study visa which only entitles residency during the stipulated residential sessions of the course. Students wishing to study full-time are encouraged to consider the M.Phil in International Relations, details of which can be found on the website at
