Our Teaching Work:

Courses in Diplomatic Arts

(Current and Upcoming)

Clusters and Tailor-Made

The world of diplomacy and international relations has never failed to stay a highly demanding place. Customarily, we expect its dwellers to display the brightest schooling, especially when it comes to the gargantuan multifariousness of human cultures and societies.

The conventional system of higher learning, however, is not particularly poised to produce entirely accomplished and unarguably au courant diplomatists.

In consequence, the very individuals aspiring to master the glorious diplomatic profession (in any of its contemporary manifestations) are to make their own journey towards perfection – that is to become what one of the greatest diplomats of the past, the illustrious François de Callières (1645-1717), defined as ‘the enlightened and assiduous negotiator‘.

To assist those who feel the calling for diplomacy or other occupations in international dimension, the Kyiv School of Diplomatic Arts offers a number of course clusters and tailor-made courses.
