About

This Education and International Development - Conflict, Emergencies and Peace programme at University College London (UCL) focuses on the concepts and theories relating to education in conflict and emergencies and implications for peace and development.

Overview

This Education and International Development - Conflict, Emergencies and Peace programme at University College London (UCL) provides students with the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of key aspects of theory, policy and practice in the field of education in conflict and crisis (eg. refugee situations, pandemic and ongoing wars).

Particularly, they will become critically aware of political, economic and social dimensions of education and their relationships with instabilities, armed conflicts and prospects for peace with social justice.

Students benefit from being taught by renowned researchers in the field, as well as being part of a student community with diverse experience of working in contexts affected by war and other types of emergencies.

Employability

Graduates of our international development programmes are mostly employed in NGOs, donor and multi-lateral agencies, national and local education departments, schools and universities.

With a broad understanding of education and international development and the specialisation in conflict, emergencies and peace, our graduates are best suited to work for humanitarian agencies, international/UN organisations, research institutes and education aid agencies that support education in politically and socially unstable environments (eg. refugee camps, contexts of ongoing wars, health emergencies, crisis caused by natural disasters, such as hurricane/flood/earthquake/drought). Some students continue on to doctoral study.

A number of students are mid-career professionals (including teachers, ministry staff and NGO professionals), for whom the programme forms part of their wider professional development, providing access to more senior roles or to a change of career direction.
