The Undergraduate Certificate in International Relations provides a broad overview of what International Relations is, considers how the International Order has come about and how it is changing. It offers a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world order and international affairs, including international security, global politics, international trade, and diplomacy. The course is designed for anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of global issues affecting society today, those with a professional interest in the subject, and may also be of particular interest if you are considering future study on the Institute's MSt in International Relations.

Technical requirements

For the 2021-2022 Academic Year this course is being taught remotely. This means there will be no face-to-face teaching and you will not need to be present in person in Cambridge, although there is an expectation that you will attend synchronous teaching sessions. The course content will be delivered, and the learning outcomes met, through the use of video-based teaching platforms and a dedicated course Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

You will therefore need to have access to:

- the internet via a computer, laptop, tablet or other smart device

- speakers or headphones in order to hear any pre-recorded material

- a webcam and microphone for any interactive sessions which may be available

Once you are logged into the VLE you can familiarise yourself with the learning environment. There is also guidance about how to access course materials and activities. 

Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. If your first language is not English, please refer to our Information for Applicants pages for further guidance.
