Who can go?
Eligible full-time residential students of the School of International Relations MLitt programmes.
The number of students selected for this programme varies from year to year. There are currently one to five places available to study at Georgetown per academic year for a period of one semester.
How to apply
The application process for a place at Georgetown University is competitive. Interested students will be invited to submit a 3000-word assignment by 2 October. The assignment title will be set at the beginning of Semester 1 and will be circulated to all matriculated full-time residential students by email.
In order to be offered a place on the exchange programme, students must achieve a 16.5 or above for this assignment which will be marked internally by the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV) at St Andrews. Applicants must also supply a reference as part of their application.
Successful applicants must attend a briefing session with CSTPV staff early in October; the exact date will be confirmed nearer the time.
