Work Experience for IR?


Recommended Posts

It seems that full-time work experience is an important requirement for MPP programs. Is it the same for IR programs?

I think the key would be relevant experience, whether full or part time. It does not have to be a salaried position, but should be related to your desired field in some way.

For example, study/immersion abroad and living/working in a country whether paid or unpaid will give you a strong advantage in your applications. Similarly would working in the US in an IR oriented position. In either case, it would be to your advantage to have strong foreign language abilities when applying as well.

Other than that, the usual factors such as statement, references, and other support material will play a big role in the admissions process.
