Our course can be studied at Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Master’s Level, with the opportunity to stop, pause or progress between stages. Whilst most complete a full Master’s degree with us, many students choose to pause after the first or second stage, graduating and continuing their careers with ‘PGCert’ or ‘PGDip’ after their name.
- Study wherever you are, whilst working. We can provide the flexibility of studying online and through short workshops4 where you can network and learn with peers in a diverse range of roles around the world.
- An international network of professionals. Access to a current network of practitioners2 working in roles related to peacebuilding internationally, as well as the large team of researchers and practitioners working in the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations.
- A distinctive, international course led by world-leading experts. This course views peace studies as an activist discipline, which looks more holistically at peace than other similar courses. Our courses are global, from the content of the programme and the staff leading them, to the diverse backgrounds of our participants.
Accreditation, Professional Recognition and Exemptions
Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL1) is the process by which Coventry University awards credits towards a qualification based on a student’s prior learning and experience in, for example, their career, previous qualifications and other, relevant life experience. For this course, Coventry University is able to award a third of the credits of the qualification based on a student’s reflection on the outcomes of their prior experience and learning, providing a fast-track option and an opportunity to complete a master’s degree in 16 months rather than 2 years.
All applications will be evaluated individually with admissions decisions made by CTPSR. Admission decisions are based on the entry criteria elaborated below and an evaluation of the required application documents.
Ordinarily, the minimum entry criteria for each stage (PGCert, PGDip & MA) of the Peace and Conflict Studies programme are as follows:
Applicants should hold a 2:2 or above degree (or equivalent international grade/qualification), from a recognised University, preferably in a social science subject (e.g. Sociology, Psychology, Security Studies, International Relations, Politics, Peace and Conflict Studies, Development Studies, etc.).
Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning:
To be eligible for AP(E)L an applicant must have a minimum of five (5) years evidenced working experience in a relevant field to Peace and Conflict Studies and be operating in a relevant role at the level of mid-management or above at the time of application, or have operated within a relevant role at the level of mid-management or above within 12 months of the time of application. An eligible applicant seeking AP(E)L will be assessed by a portfolio and admissions interview, alongside their capacity to complete the programme successfully.
English language requirements
For non-UK applicants, the entry requirement is English language proficiency at IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. Where applicants do not hold up-to-date IELTS certification, we will look at whether an applicant has previously studied and successfully completed a Higher Education qualification in English. Where an applicant does not hold such a qualification entry will be at the discretion of the Course Director and subject to a review of documentation and an interview. Please call or email our team if you have questions about this requirement.
- IELTS: 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5
If you don’t meet the English language requirements, you can achieve the level you need by successfully completing a pre-sessional English programme before you start your course.
