ABOUT

Explore the relationship between the environment, international development and social justice, and learn how environmental challenges inform policy and practice.
 

Course description

Environmental considerations are central to international development theory, policy and practice. Our course gives you an in-depth understanding of the complexities of international development. You’ll also explore how society-environment interactions influence international development policy and practice.

You’ll develop professional skills, carry out hands-on research during a field class, and you’ll complete a placement-based dissertation that links academic theory with development practice.

Our teaching involves industry and sector specialists, which means you can make connections and contacts with a global network of expertise beyond the University. On this course you’ll develop the practical skills you need to work within development and environmental organisations around the world.

Field class

The course typically includes a week-long field class. On all our trips you will learn how to interact with development partners, and experience first hand collecting data from local communities.

We take an ethical and sustainable approach to planning destinations and consider the impact on local communities and the environment.

Recent destinations have included Kenya, Tanzania, Ecuador, Peru, Sierra Leone, and Nepal. The destination for your field class may change from year to year in response to our course content, our world-leading research, reviews, feedback from students or wider global events. We will contact students in advance of any changes to our field classes. This could mean your field class is delivered as a virtual field class (all online) or as a hybrid field class (online with a UK residential trip), working closely with an overseas partner.

The cost of the compulsory field class is included in your tuition fees.

Placement

The dissertation with placement gives you valuable practical experience of working in a development organisation and engaging with development issues.

You’ll spend six to eight weeks in June or July based in a host organisation, where you’ll carry out a research project identified by the organisation and approved by the University. Your project will have clear practical relevance and will generate findings that form the basis of your dissertation. Students may also spend time working directly on the organisation’s core activities.

We currently work with over 30 host organisations in the UK and across the globe. Some have a wide remit, others have a specialist focus on issues such as conservation, education or health.

Placements to overseas destinations are subject to the same potential constraints imposed by travel conditions and health risks due to Covid-19.

The costs of the dissertation with placement module are not included in your tuition fees. A limited number of low-cost local placements are also available.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we’ll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption. We are no longer offering unrestricted module choice. If your course included unrestricted modules, your department will provide a list of modules from their own and other subject areas that you can choose from.

 

Duration

  • 1 year full-time

Teaching

There are seminars, lectures, workshops and reading groups.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, plans for the advertised academic year have not yet been finalised. The delivery of our courses will continue to be guided by national guidelines for education which balance educational needs with the safety of our students and staff. During the pandemic, the international elements of our courses have been taught with a virtual field class. This approach was commended by the external examiner and received excellent feedback from students.

The field class is integral and valuable to our programme. We intend to explore international destinations in the future. This will be determined by whether it is possible and responsible to do so in line with the coronavirus situation in the UK and our overseas destinations. 

Assessment

You’ll be assessed on your coursework assignments and a dissertation.

 

Entry requirements

You’ll need a 2:1 or first-class honours degree in an area of the social sciences or medicine.

 

Overall IELTS score of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.

After Graduation

The international students can work up to 20 hours in part-time jobs in the UK, however, they must refer to their visa to see whether they have study and work permits or not, we recommend you to focus only on your education to get the best results and be able to find the most suitable jobs in the UK or the global market right after graduation, on the other hand, if the international applicants need extra financial help to pay for their tuition fee, living, and study expenses, they can find part-time jobs under some conditions, also if the students find related jobs to their educational fields (with the help of the university), they will obtain more real experience and skills aside from the theoretical knowledge that they acquire during their study period.
