What piece of advice would you give to anyone considering postgraduate study in your field?

Definitely go for it! There’ll be a lot of reading, but if you naturally find the subject area interesting, you’ll get so much out of it!

What, for you, are the best things about the course?

– The ability to take a wide range of modules across both the International Development Department and Department of Political Science, providing a broad scope of knowledge.

– A small, tight-knit and sociable department and course

What was your motivation for undertaking postgraduate study?

Wishing to specialise after a more general geography degree, the MSc Environment, Development and Politics course gave me the opportunity to focus on the specific areas I enjoyed and learn more in areas that interested me.
