Course summary

•Learn language and cultural theory as well as business communication skills •Study in a community of students from all over the world •Spend one semester on a European campus (optional) On our MA Intercultural Communication, you will discover the importance of intercultural relationships to the modern socio-economic climate - and to building a successful career within it. You will explore how cultural differences impact our interactions in the workplace and in wider society, considering topics such as migration, identity and how EU policy confronts language issues. By learning to use different methodological tools to understand language and communication, you will sharpen your analytical skills and gain the confidence to think independently around the interdisciplinary, and often multinational, challenges of the modern workplace. If you study full-time with us, you can also choose to spend one semester at a European university (the Eurocampus). Your studies will be equivalent to those of Cambridge-based students, and all your work will be in English, but with the benefit of gaining first-hand experience of living and working in a different country. Whether you choose our Cambridge campus or the Eurocampus, you will work alongside students from all over the world, giving you additional understanding of intercultural environments that will support your academic studies. Course Leader: Professor Guido Rings.

Assessment method

If you choose the Cambridge-only route, you will demonstrate your progress on the course through written coursework: a 6000-word essay for each module except Impacts of Migration, which combines a 5000-word essay with a presentation. You will also complete a 15,000-word dissertation. If you choose the Eurocampus route, your method of assessment will change depending on the institution you attend.

Entry requirements

•A good First Degree, with Honours, in a related subject. •If English is not your first language you will be expected to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 ( Academic level) or equivalent English Language qualification, as recognised by Anglia Ruskin University. •Our international students usually study the whole MA Intercultural Communication course in Cambridge, but if you want to take the Eurocampus route you’ll need to secure an appropriate visa. The application process for this will depend on the immigration offices of the European country that you will be studying in. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to secure a visa, but we advise you to start applying for a visa before you arrive at Anglia Ruskin or shortly after you register with us. Our International Student Advice Service can help you with your visa application once you are at Anglia Ruskin. Please note that the two routes for our MA Intercultural Communication have different fees.
