Progress your career with a Politics and International Development master’s

If you’re looking to study with a top UK university to further your career, Loughborough University could be your next step – with two campuses in the UK, London and Loughborough – you can help make real-world impact in an era of significant social, economic and technological change.

Our London master’s programmes focus on diplomacy, governance and social change. You’ll gain practical-based learning through industry-led projects and have opportunities to engage with leading organisations and agencies to develop professional skills through our Collaborative Project, with options to undertake a dissertation or internship with industry.

Our International Security MA on our Loughborough campus will provide you with skills to understand global security issues through policy-relevant research. You’ll learn how to tackle real-world, contemporary security issues from climate change and migration to urban warfare, and develop career skills from our policy-relevant teaching.

The greatest skill I have developed from the International Security MA would be how to write a fully comprehensive and effective policy brief. This was extremely helpful as several of the jobs I applied for were policy and research roles where this type of work was mandatory. My advice to future students would be to apply without hesitation. The course is great, and offers the chance to network and gain connections in a field where there are so many interesting employment opportunities.” – Ellen, International Security MA
