Academy of Diplomacy and International Governance

The Academy of Diplomacy and International Governance programmes offer our students an unrivalled insight into competencies to effectively deal with the challenges and opportunities in the areas of modern diplomacy, international security, international business and trade, global communication and information management.

Taught mostly in the evenings and on Saturdays, these programmes have been built on more than 36 years of experience in the training and advancement of those in the diplomatic service and we seek to become the leading centre for the development of the world’s new generation of diplomats and leaders.

These programmes are a desirable progression route for those aspiring to work directly in the diplomatic sector or for those looking to gain a full understanding of the conduct of international relations within a commercial context. The Academy of Diplomacy and International Governance is ideal for individuals looking for rapid career progression into management and development positions in the global diplomatic, business and security communities.

The academic network within the Academy upholds an outstanding track record in the teaching of diplomacy and other related disciplines. Alumni taught by the Academy's Director Professor Nabil Ayad have continued into Ministerial and Ambassadorial roles in their home countries. Others are working for the United Nations, NATO, the European Union, the League of Arab States, security and defence organisations, the media and as university lecturers.

Alongside a suite of unrivalled programmes and impressive teaching staff, the Academy is ideally located in the country’s capital and is in easy reach of all the principal diplomatic missions, government departments, media and financial centres and the headquarters of all major multinational organisations.

The Academy also maintains close partnerships and cultural exchange opportunities with a number of leading diplomatic academies and institutes. In turn, the programmes will enable students to develop a network of associates as well as build a unique, pertinent learning experience at Loughborough University London.

Courses which were offered by the staff of the Academy in the past were valued by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the UK Ministry of Defence, overseas Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Diplomatic Missions in London, international and regional organisations and multinational corporations for their relevance and focus on career development.
