In addition to field-work elements in a number of the taught modules, we have a weekend residential trip in Year 1 and a longer trip in either the UK or overseas.In Year 3, you’ll have the opportunity to gain hands on experience through your dissertation research and/or Development Work Experience module.Although registered on the BA Geography and International Development degree, successful completion of the foundation year allows entry to any of the interdisciplinary undergraduate degree pathways in the School of International Development (DEV), including: BA International Development, BA International Development with Anthropology, BA International Development with Economics, BA International Development with Politics, BA Media and International Development, BA Geography and International Development and BSc International Development and the Environment.
