As part of the University's strategic partnership with MGIMO, the Department of Politics and International Relations offers a Double Master's in International Security Studies with MGIMO.
It is a full-time, 24-month programme taught entirely in English, where you will spend year two in Moscow.
We also welcome students who have started their degree at MGIMO to the University of Reading for their second year.
