The Quantitative International Development course offered by the University of Essex is open to all students looking to understand the problems that the developing world faces from the perspective of a researcher in the area.With the new data revolution and the recent developments in data collection all over the world, we can apply strong analytical techniques to understand the reality of developing countries.
Most of the cutting edge work in the best universities of the world is testing previous concepts with newly collected data using well advanced techniques. In this course we teach you the essentials of research design and statistics, and then you have the option to explore a set of selected topics in international development in order to hone your skills on the subject matter.You build a thorough understanding of the key statistical techniques, together with a more scientific approach to understanding the pressing issues in International Development through studying the following topics:
- Modern research methods
- Fundamentals of research design

After completing your masters, you may wish to extend your knowledge with a research degree –many Essex graduates decide to stay here for further study.
Alternatively, our course also prepares you for employment; recent surveys have shown that higher degree graduates are more likely to obtain jobs at professional or managerial level.
Our recent Master’s level graduates have gone on to work for a range of high-profile organisations in the international development field, such as United Nations and The World Bank.
