The four-year degree programme includes studying for the first two years at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) and the last two years at The University of Reading, resulting in an award from both institutions

The double degree programme is unique, combining both UK and Russian teaching and research perspectives, and providing students with access to both the UK and Russian job markets after graduation.

A recent webinar was held to provide more information on the programme including the academic content & entry requirements.  This was presented by Dr Mikhail Troitskiy, the Dean and Associate Professor of the School of Government and International Affairs of MGIMO, Dr Mark Shanahan, the Head of Politics and International Relations Department and Lecturer Dr Vladimir Rauta.

The full webinar is available to watch here

The MGIMO part of the curriculum includes lectures and seminars in social sciences and humanities, such as history and philosophy, sociology and economics, and political science and international relations. You will also be trained in academic skills and creative writing.

The core parts of the Moscow curriculum are delivered by native English speakers with advanced degrees in politics and linguistics from leading universities across the globe.

In your final two years at the University of Reading, you will complete advanced courses in comparative politics, foreign policy analysis and contemporary global issues.
