Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
Are you interested in finding out how social development is affecting the people who live in the world’s poorest countries? Do you want to learn about globalisation and consider its impact on the people of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe? Are you interested in the way NGOs work to address issues of poverty? Do you worry about the value of their work? This course will give you the answers you seek – and much more. You’ll have the chance to study for a term overseas. Recently students have studied in South Africa, Brazil, Thailand and at the American University in Cairo. In your third year, you will undertake a supported work placement with an NGO. On this course you’ll ‘learn by doing’, gaining the skills to become an informed and critical practitioner. You’ll contribute directly to practical solutions in the developing world and reflect on the impact of NGO work. International Development graduates from UEL are sought after for their rounded outlook and experience. They’ve landed jobs at organisations such as The World Health Organisation, The Refugee Council and Medecins Sans Frontieres. This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in NGO and Development Management, but you don’t have the standard entry requirements. First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.
