Course Summary

Course Summary

This established course, which has been running for ten years, examines the central issues facing developing countries in today’s globalised world, giving you the skills for a job in development and the wider sectors.

Our aim is to make you an informed and critical development practitioner. You will be equipped with all the practical skills that are demanded by development agencies. You will also gain insight across the wider picture, understanding how developing countries can progress and how the poor can be mobilised to escape from the poverty trap.

The course also explores how NGOs can play a key role in promoting social and economic progress and you will develop the ability to identify, design and implement programmes with a view to engaging with and enhancing the situation of the poor.

Your Future Career

This course has a strong focus on employability and is specifically designed to give you the skills to work for development agencies, NGOs and in the wider development sector. The experience and contacts of our staff will help you set up placements in the UK, Africa, Asia or Latin America and gain more understanding of how the sector works. You will gain the experience and knowledge either to further your career in NGO and development management or to use your skills within the area to enhance the role you are already playing.

Our students who have worked in the field before have found that after the course they are in a much better position to apply for more senior jobs across the development sector with the extra practical and critical thinking skills they have developed.
