Welcome to your MA in PAIS!

We are Philippe and Flo, and we are jointly responsible for running the MA programmes here in PAIS. Whereas Philippe is the Director of Graduate Studies and ensures that everything regarding your degree is running smoothly, Flo is the Director of Student Experience and Progression for all MA students in the department and is here to help you get the most out of your studies, whether it be choosing your modules, or discussing possible careers.

We’re very much looking forward to you joining us in the Autumn and we’ve brought together some information and resources to help you with organising your activities during welcome week and to settle into your studies in the best possible way.

The centrepiece of these pages is the Welcome Week Schedule. Here, you find an overview of all the events we will be running in PAIS to help you settle into your MA. Furthermore, we have put together a list of Frequently Asked Questions which will hopefully provide answers to the most burning issues. Should you have any further questions, please do drop the MA Office a line on

Please also take the time to read the welcome message from our Head of Department, Prof Matthew Clayton.

Module pre-registration has now closed and we are working hard to get you allocated to modules before the start of term. If you wish to get an overview of the available modules this year, then please click here.

We hope you have a safe journey, and look forward to welcoming you to your MA in person!
