"The MA in International Relations at Keele has been a fantastic, fast-paced, year".

"The chance to take an interdisciplinary approach via the module choices has meant that I have been part of the Law department for Human Rights modules and English department studying Dissent and International Relations department for the theory and structure of the Masters. I have become a much more confident academic which is definitely thanks to the lovely supportive staff, both academic and administrative, within SPIRE. I have had the chance to continue to work as an activist, presenting as part of a teach-out and helping with various things during the industrial action early in 2018. I have also been a very active member of the Keele Postgraduate Association, taking on the role of Equality and Diversity Officer. I never expected to have such a busy and exciting year but Keele is full of surprises and wonderful people to help encourage you with your work".
