This MSc International Development programme is designed for anyone involved in conceptualising or administering policies for a sustainable and substantial level of development in the world's poorer countries. It is especially suitable for individuals whom are already involved in planning development strategies, currently working for non-governmental organisations in the development field or planning for a career in development. The programme combines an intellectual and academic approach with policy-oriented and empirical studies of development. It addresses three separate, but related, facets of the development process: analysing what development means; studying the processes of planning (external aid, regional disparities, environmental factors, poverty and industrialisation); examining how development policies may be delivered and administered, analysing the importance of effective political and bureaucratic structures, and evaluating the contributions of NGOs and other external bodies. This programme will prepare students for careers in the civil service, NGOs and charity work - require an MSc and some volunteer/internship experience.
