Course summary

Overview

Economic growth, implementation of human rights, fighting poverty levels, and improving health or education standards, have become central concerns for policymakers within developing states. The impact of legal standards and international rules in assisting developing states achieve their developmental aims has generated increasing interest from legal scholars and practitioners alike. This area has been given new impetus by the launch of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

With a wide variety of modules, including the specialist module, Law, Development and the International Community, this course enables you to engage with the key questions that arise in the debates arising from development activity.

Academic English preparation and support

If you require additional support to take your language skills to the required level, you may be able to attend a presessional course at the Centre for English Language Education, which is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK.

Students who successfully complete the presessional course to the required level can progress to postgraduate study without retaking IELTS or equivalent.
