Course summary

1st in the world for Development Studies (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018) – join our lively community of doctoral researchers and address some of the most important current issues in international development.

Our PhD is among the most diverse in the world, in terms of supervisors and students, and topics being researched. All our doctoral projects engage with the global challenges that face societies across the world today. You’ll work with a range of experts from across the natural and social sciences whose cutting-edge original research has made a significant impact on individuals, institutions and societies around the world.

In the School of Global Studies, we host one of the UK’s largest doctoral research communities in International Development, and here students have a voice and an identity!

AREAS OF STUDY

Our research interests are in fields such as:

  • environment, resources and mobilisation
  • gender, sexuality and conflict
  • human rights and welfare
  • humanitarian design and citizen aid
  • markets, labour and finance
  • migration and mobility.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
