MRes/PhD Programme


The Department of International Development runs a vibrant research programme with students employing a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary methods for research projects across Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

The MRes/PhD in International Development is a one-year research Master's linked to a four-year PhD. The programme grounds students in a common academic heritage while providing them with significant flexibility appropriate to their research interests. We equip our students with advanced methodological and theoretical skills within disciplinary specialisms, with the aim of producing graduates who go on to be excellent, well-rounded and intensively trained social scientists. To this end, the first year of the programme combines intensive coursework (through taught courses) with research design (preparation of a 10,000 word research proposal). This proposal forms the basis of the student's subsequent PhD research.
