The School of International Relations is the only one of its kind in Scotland and is recognised globally for the exceptional quality of its research and teaching.

With expertise in area studies - including Africa, Europe and the Middle East - foreign policy, international organisations and regimes, peace and conflict studies, political theory, and terrorism and political violence, the School offers a friendly, intellectually stimulating and vibrant environment in which students can assess developments in the international system.


Global Challenges Annual Competition

CSTPV and the School of International Relations has been gifted substantial funding to run a Global Challenges Annual Competition - the first of its kind for IR and an amazing opportunity for undergraduate students to showcase their ideas and creativity in pursuit of an answer to a current hot topic.

The competition is open to current University of St Andrews Undergraduates (including those who study IR together with other subjects) and aims to support students personal and academic development and ability to work collaboratively, effectively and creatively.

Please see the Global challenges competition (PDF, 51 KB) or the GlobalChallenges website for more information.
