The School of International Development at UEA is a leading global centre of excellence in research and teaching in international development.
We are committed to making a real difference in the world. Our academics regularly advise on policy on major global challenges such as poverty reduction and environmental sustainability.
In the 2013 National Student Survey, we received a 100 per cent satisfaction rating from our students, placing us as joint first for overall satisfaction in the area of Human and Social Geography. Our students leave with academic expertise, training in practical skills and usually do a work placement as part of their degree.
Our high-quality research is well recognised; with our work judged as ‘internationally excellent' in the last government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008). We incorporate our research into our teaching, ensuring students receive the benefit of our expertise.
