JENTE ALTHUIS (Netherlands)

“Spending a year as researcher at the NATO StratCom COE taught me a lot about the world of strategic communications in the military environment. My work included case study research, data analysis, cooperation with both academics and practitioners, preparing briefings, and reviewing and editing publications, among others. It has been an indispensable experience before returning to KCSC and the War Studies Department to pursue a PhD.”

LEONIE HAIDEN (Austria)

“At the Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence I not only applied and broadened my theoretical knowledge from the King’s Strategic Communications course, but also learned more about the organisational culture of NATO, and the security concerns of the Baltic states. All the while enjoying the beautiful city of Riga!”

“It is very exciting to be working with some of the leading experts in the field, and to directly implement what I learnt during my M.A. out in the real world. I am learning more every single day at the COE, and am able to explore a wide range of topics and geographical areas.”

TARA FLORES (UNITED KINGDOM)

“I spent 3 months as an intern in the Concept, Doctrine and Experimentation branch working on one of the COE’s main projects, studying hybrid warfare. My internship was one of the most memorable I’ve had. It was a chance to work with some incredibly talented and experienced people from whom I learnt a lot. Not to mention, living in Latvia in the winter is an experience in itself!”
