About

The International Development programme offered by the University of Bristol is designed for anyone involved in conceptualising or administering policies related to the Global Development Challenges. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The International Development programme offered by the University of Bristol  is especially suitable if you are already involved in planning development strategies, currently working for non-governmental or 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.

Careers

Bristol graduates are in high demand and have an excellent record of employment following graduation. Students of the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies' MSc programmes go on to pursue varied and interesting careers.

Many sectors - such as the civil service, NGOs and charities - require an MSc and some volunteer/internship experience. Graduates from our programmes have gone on to work for Refugee UK, Shelter, Barnardos, Amnesty International, government departments and the European Parliament, among others.
