Having completed two terms of study at the University of Exeter, students on MA Advanced Arabic, MA Middle East Politics and Advanced Arabic, and MA International Relations and Advanced Arabic will take this Study Abroad module, which involves spending 4 weeks in an Arabic-speaking country, attending an intensive language course at one of our partner institutions and practising Arabic in real life situations. This period of study abroad will significantly advance students’ fluency in spoken Arabic and knowledge of dialect, and will enable them to gain first-hand experience of Arab society and culture. During their time abroad, students will be supported both by colleagues in the study abroad institution and by a personal tutor from the IAIS (the latter via online media). Assessment will be in the form of assignments and exams set by the partner institution. Prerequisites: Advanced Arabic I., Advanced Arabic II.
