About

International Development from University of Kent is taught by academics, practitioners and policymakers to enable you to understand the multifaceted political, economic and legal processes that shape development.

Overview

International Development from University of Kent is an attractive home for development studies, not just because of its experience and expertise in international studies, but also because of its location in Brussels, the site of various development institutions and agencies at the core of the field.

The programme improves your critical understanding of contemporary issues in development and provides practical tools for a future engagement. It considers theoretical, practical and ethical issues by interrogating development discourses, objectives and effects, and by seeking to understand forms of inclusion/exclusion and intervention in societies.

For many students, coming to Brussels is a great opportunity to seek out internship and job opportunities.
