Learning

Outline

Our world is more connected than ever. Yet, the poorest countries still struggle with poverty and migration is now one of the most widely debated topics. Explore all the significant issues our world faces today and in the future on our International Development course. We’ll explore what it means to be a ‘developed’ country, the gap between global North and South, the role of globalization and the efficiency of foreign aid.

 

Teaching methodology

Learn the Oxford way with tutorial style teaching. Your expert tutor will foster self-directed learning and critical thinking through interactive seminars in small groups (no bigger than 8). During your course, you will complete two pieces of independent work (essays or problem sheets), which your tutor will then evaluate in either a 1:1 or 2:1 tutorial. Tutorials will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your work and feedback with your tutor and learn new perspectives from your classmates. On completion of the course, you’ll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.
