The Warwick-NTU Double Masters Programme presents an innovative course of study offering the opportunity to live and study in two culturally diverse countries and regions. You will experience the best of both worlds in conceptual training, empirical relevance, and policy application, gaining an invaluable dual perspective.
Studying in PAIS at the University of Warwick and the S Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) offers you the opportunity to study global perspectives in two major international regions, with two highly prestigious departments, renowned for their robust research backgrounds and detailed policy and empirical expertise in the field of International Studies.
With one year spent studying at Warwick and the other in the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the Double MA in Politics and International Studies gives you the chance to live and study in two culturally diverse countries and regions whilst gaining two Masters degrees from globally respected European and Asian universities.
You’ll spend the first year in PAIS on your chosen MA specialism, with the department’s expertise in the political and methodological aspects of the subject providing you with a foundation for a focus on Asian Studies, International Political Economy, Strategic Studies or International Relations at RSIS in your second year.
At the end of the degree, you will earn an 'MA in Politics and International Studies: [your specialism title] (double degree with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)' from Warwick as well as a corresponding Masters from NTU.
The student experience
My Master of Arts in International Politics and East Asia (IPEA) provided me with the theoretical bedrock from which my understanding of APAC-related geo-politics and geo-economics, has flourished.
At the RSIS, the Master of Sciences in Strategic Studies has pushed me to develop a more practice-oriented approach to security issues that relate to the APAC region: terrorism, political risks, state tensions, disruptive technologies, etc. I partook in practical and analytical workshops run by APAC policy-makers, industry leaders and diplomats who taught me to consider the practical dimensions of corporate and state projects and policies. I also had the chance to work with senior analysts of the Executive Deputy Chairman’s Office and to co-author a published commentary.
