IMRCEES is intended for students wishing to pursue a career in government policy-making, the business world, diplomatic service, international organisations, and media or as preparation for further academic study through a PhD programme.

Flexible and high quality language training is an essential part of IMRCEES.
An array of academic conferences, workshops and other socio-cultural events involving all Consortium partners will help to make the IMRCEES experience a truly rewarding one in terms of making lasting friendships and equipping you for a future professional career.
