Our graduates go on to work in a wide range of careers all around the world

Alumni stories

Graduates from the School of International Development go on to work in almost every corner of the globe. Here are a few recent alumni case studies that should provide an insight into the potential directions in which a degree from DEV can take you.

As these diverse career case studies will demonstrate it is important to realise that there are many different routes into the sector. Your own career path will depend on your particular interests, skills and experience as well as the opportunities you find as you go along. Successful graduates often develop their skills and experience by volunteering, through an internship, or by working in the private sector or in local government prior to finding their dream job. Others find that the international outlook of a DEV degree is also highly valued by international companies and local government or charity organisations.
