International relations is a field of study that examines the interactions of participants in international politics, including both governments and non-state entities. The study of international relations involves problems such as: What powers does the UN truly have? What power does the United Nations Security Council wield over the rest of the world? What treaties and economic agreements have influenced relations between countries that were at war only a few decades ago? Over the course of two weeks of interactive lessons, you will investigate these and other problems, as well as global concerns, group debates, and other topics.
In small groups of like-minded and ambitious peers from across the world, you will explore innovative topics and share ideas. You will be taught by professional teachers who have polished their skills via teaching undergraduate students at world-renowned universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, and Harvard in small class sizes averaging 7 people.
A thorough screening procedure ensures that all participants are taught by engaging and helpful instructors who are eager to share their knowledge and skills in order to assure the greatest possible quality of summer school instruction. Immerse is a once-in-a-lifetime academic opportunity.
**The Middle East In International Relations: **Home to the world’s three great religions and harbouring massive quantities of oil and gas, the Middle East seems to invite geopolitical attention almost by default. Nowhere else are the failings of economic and political development so closely intertwined in producing international conflict. In this module, you will explore the key international actors in this region.
The Role Of Ideas In International Relations: As new global priorities have emerged in recent decades, nation states and other global actors have increasingly demonstrated their ‘social’ side in such fields as climate change, international human rights, and international aid. This class explores the role of ideas in IR, an approach that is typically captured by the term “Constructivism”.
The Project of a European Union: Today, the EU has a total population of more than 500 million people. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the European Union in today’s increasingly globalised world? This module focuses on understanding the internal structure of the EU and assesses its capabilities as a political actor in internal and external affairs.
United Nations Simulation: You will be assigned a country to represent at a high-level diplomatic meeting of the UN Security Council and to write a position paper about your country’s foreign policy regarding a topical political scenario. You must then present and defend your country's position on the matter, working to form alliances in accordance with its goals.
Workshops are designed to help participants realize their full potential by providing them with the skills they need to prepare for the next steps in their education and their long-term aspirations. You'll improve your study abilities in preparation for future university studies.
These courses cover a wide range of subjects, ranging from 'Productivity Tips' to '21st Century Technology Skills.' You can be sure that you'll learn something new. Immerse, unlike traditional institutions, allows you to study outside of the classroom.
You have a busy and diverse social schedule outside of classes to help you make the most of your time in Oxford. Punting on the River Cam, zorb football, and a murder mystery night at the college are among the activities available.
During the program, there are two possible excursions: one day trip to Oxford and its constituent colleges, and an optional day trip to London to view the city's most recognized monuments as well as some free time for shopping. Those who do not like to travel to London are welcomed to Oxford for afternoon tea.
The staff of friendly mentors lead activities and excursions, with the primary goal of maximizing your experience.
Every institution has a customary weekly luncheon known as Formal Hall. Students will be able to dress up and dine by candlelight in the wonderful settings of an Oxford University college dining hall.
As an Immerse student, you will have formal dinner three times throughout your stay: once a week in Oxford and once on an excursion day at a Cambridge University college.
Remember to dress up for formal hall because it is a once-in-a-lifetime event.
A few weeks before their arrival, all participants will be assigned to a college based on their dates and topic preferences.
