The first cohort of IMESS students arrived in London in 2007 to begin the MA at UCL. Since then the consortium has grown from six partners to eight – the University of Belgrade joining from 2012 – and over 100 students have entered the IMESS programme.
Our students have come from all four corners of the globe (Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Estonia, France, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macedonia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, New Zealand, Nigeria, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, United Kingdom and United States) and come from diverse academic backgrounds (Economics, Business, Management, Politics, International Relations, History, Literature and Cultural Studies, Science).
Incoming and current students
From the start of the IMESS programme, until graduation, all IMESS students are given access to the consortium’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), hosted within Moodle. Moodle provides a password protected forum that provides tools for content delivery, communication and collaboration, assessment and evaluation.
