**Why study this course?** Explore contemporary diplomacy against the changing nature of world politics in this highly innovative degree course. Lecturers with nationally recognised expertise guide you through issues of international terrorism, climate change and violent conflict, and introduce you to the practices of a variety of international players including Greenpeace, the United Nations, and even celebrities and private individuals. In the most recent (2015-16) Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months. In the National Student Survey 2017 this course scored an impressive 95% overall student satisfaction. **More about this course** This exciting course provides students with an excellent grounding in the development and dilemmas of diplomacy and international affairs in today's globalising world. This degree is practically oriented and you'll gain experience and develop your skills through formal opportunities to interact with serving and former diplomats and other international actors. You can also take part in simulations, roleplay exercises, and a variety of assessment tasks. There are also excellent opportunities for you to pursue a specific interest, such as a particular region (eg the Middle East or Africa) or to study a language. Our teaching team can also support you in finding a work placement with a relevant organisation in your final year. We've helped our students secure work placements in embassies, government departments and non-governmental organisations such as Amnesty International. Members of the course teaching team have nationally-recognised expertise in developing students' employability, and the practical dimension of the course, along with opportunities for reflection through the various methods of assessment, will enable graduates of the programme to promote themselves effectively in the competitive job market. **What our students say** “Studying at London Metropolitan has without a doubt been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The enthusiasm and commitment of the staff has been so encouraging and the cultural diversity of students has been an enormous inspiration, both profoundly challenging my way of thinking. The academic quality has exceeded my expectations with great debates and continual support from my teachers which has made me feel confident about and well-prepared for the future.” Kimie Frengler

With the campus in the lovely Islington, north London, you are right on the doorstep of so many great things here. The Kings Head Pub and Theatre has some of the best new shows in the city, the Union Chapel has amazing gigs in an incredible atmosphere. Camden Passage is nearby too, with lots of interesting things for your flat. Camden is of course a short walk away, and you can get down into east London on the Overground easily. I had such an amazing time living in London, really the best city in the world!
