School of International Development

A future for everyone

We are a world-leading centre for research, teaching, and practice, and have been ranked as the top development studies institution in the UK (THE REF Analysis 2021) and one of the top-15 institutions in the world for development studies in 2022 (see QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022). Our staff and students are committed to the use of critical analysis to create a fairer planet, and we work with a wide range of organisations – from the World Bank to WaterAid – to make a difference in the world.

As part of the School of International Development at UEA, you will join our close-knit academic community of 50 staff and over 500 students from around the world. You will learn from experts across multiple disciplines, fusing insights from economics, geography, environmental sciences, anthropology, media, politics, and development practice. Through this unique interdisciplinary approach, you will be equipped with both the theoretical grounding and the practical skills to create change in the world.

Come and study development with the best in the world. Make your voice count. And be a force for change.
