Internationale Betrekkingen en Internationale Organisatie

Are you interested in international issues? Would you like to study and work in an international environment? The IRIO Bachelor programme is a great stepping-stone to an international career.

In this three-year Bachelor's degree programme you will explore political questions on an international level. You will focus on international relations, especially on the role of international organizations.

During the programme, you will approach issues in the field of international relations from three perspectives: political, economic and legal. In addition, you will receive thorough training in a modern foreign language. You will acquire a broad understanding of international relations.

Within the programme you can compile your own profile by choosing optional modules. This offers many options to dive into an aspect you may be especially interested in, for example by choosing a minor. You can also opt for courses at other Faculties or Universities, in the Netherlands or abroad.

As the programme is taught in English, a good grasp of the English language is essential!

The Bachelor's degree in International Relations and International Organization is a quota study (numerus fixus). This means that only a limited number of students are accepted every year.
