School of Diplomacy

The courses offered by the School of Diplomacy are designed to transmit the core knowledge in International Relations required to have a strong foundation in this key subject. Access to an international body of lecturers and practitioners drawn from major institutions gives our students an edge in developing a career in diplomacy, academia, journalism, international organizations or NGOs.

There is an English and a French section.

Admission is granted upon the receipt and examination of a complete file to be addressed to SU or to be submitted during an interview with the Admissions Officer. No original must be attached as the university cannot be held responsible in case of loss. Once the file is examined, prospective students are asked to present the original of their diploma. At the end of each cycle, the student writes a dissertation for which he is assigned a mentor.

The topic of the dissertation bears on one of the subjects covered during the curriculum and, at undergraduate and graduate level, an oral defence is done in front of the jury made up of two professors.

The thesis requirements at doctoral level have separate requirements which can be found in the relevant brochure. The curriculum follows the structure of the Bologna Process and blends theory with the acquisition of a professional experience through internships.
