The students of the International Relations – Asian Studies and the International Relations – European Studies programmes are registered in a joint study programme of International Relations. The programme splits into two specialisations during the fourth semester – into Asian Studies and European Studies – students choose themselves which one they will follow. The deadline for the decision is the end of the third semester but students already indicate one of the specialisations in their application for studies for the purpose of estimate of interest in both specialisations – nevertheless, this choice is not binding and students can later change it.
