International relations and development studies are an extremely popular choice for graduates looking for postgraduate programmes at New Zealand universities. Many students who have studied these subjects or those closely related to them in the UK, and who are looking to establish a career in this field, correctly assume that studying outside the UK will afford them a valuable new perspective on global issues, as well as giving them a real point of difference on their CV.

You don't have to have studied international relations as an undergraduate though, the knowledge learnt in an international relations degree could be applicable in many different career areas. Study Options subject focus on international relations, look at a few programmes in detail, and can help you decide whether studying international relations at postgraduate level is the right decision for you.
