IBSU’s PhD programme in International Relations is taught in English and has a strong focus on research. The programme accepts only a few students and aims at training them as scholars. The intensive core courses on International Relations theory and research methods ensure the students’ understanding of the epistemological and ontological issues of field, while the opportunity of academic practice guarantees that students are able not only to receive knowledge but also to pass it on to others. By becoming one of IBSU’s professors’ assistant, PhD students can apply their skills in practice. Finally, allowing sufficiently long period for completing students’ own research, the programme creates special environment so that students can make best of their time at IBSU.
