International Development

The programme has been developed to provide a new route to the internationally respected British PhD degree by incorporating subject knowledge, research training and the development of transferable skills; the taught modules allow students to broaden, as well as deepen, their subject knowledge at the same time as undertaking their own research and developing a set of transferable professional skills in preparation for careers as professional educators and researchers, and for senior positions in public and private sector organisations.

Entry requirements

MPhil: A good Honours degree in a relevant field, but the application may also be supported by appropriate work experience. Applicants for the MPhil degree should provide evidence of their research ability, for example, the mark received for an undergraduate dissertation. PhD: Excellent undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Typically the latter will be a taught Master's degree, including a dissertation. Normally candidates for the PhD programme will initially be offered a place on the MPhil programme and will be transferred to the PhD at the end of the 1st year, subject to a satisfactory review of progress.

Course modules

Taught modules include core skills and subject specific modules, and a thesis.
