New partners on International Masters programme

Professor David Smith and Dr Clare McManus recently travelled to Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, where they successfully negotiated cooperation agreements with two new international partner institutions - the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy (ADA) and the Kazakhstan Institute of Management, Economics and Strategic Research (KIMEP).

This offers CEES students at Glasgow the opportunity to study at these institutions as part of the International Masters in Russian, Central and East European Studies, and also provides a foundation for future collaboration in research and PhD training and exchange. Both institutions also expressed an interest in sending their own PGT students to Glasgow in future, as part of a reciprocal arrangement. 

The agreement with ADA is an MoU and finance agreement, allowing Glasgow students to go to Baku for one or two semesters on an exchange basis. The agreement with KIMEP is a fuller MoA providing for the award of a double degree by the two institutions.

ADA Rector Hafiz Pashaev hailed as highly significant an agreement with a University that belongs to the world’s top 100 Institutions of Higher Education. "The University of Glasgow, which recruits thousands of students annually from different countries across the world, plans to send students to Azerbaijan, where they will take courses in international relations, diplomacy and social sciences", said H. Pashaev.
