  • Graduate Attributes

    Knowledge of a Discipline

    Students will develop knowledge of a specialised field of study in line with their chosen major.

    Communication Skills

    Students are expected to develop good communication skills in their written work. They will adopt a scholarly approach to research, presentation, writing and referencing. Assessment tasks foster these skills.

    Global Perspectives

    By definition international studies units emphasise a global perspective. In their reading, assessment and interaction with their supervisor students learn about societies and accompanying values different from their own and about the way the international system operates.

    Information Literacy

    Units in international studies stress the acquisition of skills in research and analysis, which in turn depend on the collection and evaluation of information from a range of sources. As many units are topical an ability to use e-resources is essential.

    Life-Long Learning

    The main contribution to life-long learning is in developing skills in research, analysis, interpretation and exposition. Students are encouraged to critique values, policies and processes. This includes an ability to present arguments by developing ideas, seeking evidence, assessing alternatives and drawing independent conclusions. Students are encouraged to engage in a flexible and open-minded pursuit of knowledge.

    Problem Solving

    Disciplines in this degree challenge students to apply their critical reasoning capacity to address real problems and dilemmas facing individuals, states, inter-governmental organisations and non-government actors. In doing so, students will compare, analyse and evaluate conflicting 'facts', arguments and perspectives.

    Social Responsibility

    International studies has an inherent ethical dimension concerning the nature and equity of societal interaction on a global level. After completing this unit course students will be equipped to apply a spirit of enquiry, critique, ethics and analysis to daily life and current affairs.

    Team Work

    There is an opportunity for teamwork in interaction with the supervisor while some disciplines offer postgraduate workshops.
