The Graduate Diploma/Masters in International Development Practice (MIDP) via blended learning programme is intended to help to maximise career opportunities for busy professionals and postgraduate researchers. The course is delivered on a blended learning basis, through a combination of residential summer and winter schools, online lectures and tutorials, plus a 20,000-word dissertation. Additionally, the programme will provide participants with a strong inter-disciplinary foundation and continuing professional development expertise in the area of international development practice.
This innovative programme is designed for those who wish to pursue careers within international organisations, government agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), philanthropic institutions, and consultancy firms engaged in international development practice. The programme will create a cohort of international practitioners with the capacity to analyse and scrutinise some of the most chronic developmental problems of the twenty-first century and to provide participants with the practical skills to provide resolution along a wide spectrum of critical policy areas.
The programme is offered on a full-time basis over 18 months, with part-time options also available for participants over an extended period (up to three years).
Applicants to the programme should hold at least a 2.2 honours degree. Exceptions may be made for holders of degrees from recognised granting institutions with at least 3 years cognate experience and for holders of recognised qualifications encompassing at least 3 years of study and 2 years of relevant work experience. Applicants whose first language is not English must submit written evidence of competence in the language.
