Kamna Patel, International Development (PhD)

Description
I've gained two really important things directly related to my current career from my studies at Birmingham. The first is a thorough knowledge of the research process and approaches to research. The second is the exposure to teaching masters students I gained by acting as a PGTA and as a tutor on IDD's distance learning programme. Without this combination of teaching experience and a solid grounding in research, I would not have been prepared for the challenges in my new role.

Video profile: Caroline Littlewood, MSc International Development (Urban Development)

Description
What I enjoyed most I guess was first of all studying within a really international range, being able to work with students from all over the world. Also what I really liked about the IDD programme is that it allows you to do the research for your dissertation abroad so it's combined with very hands on field research which was really the deciding point for me why I choose this degree

There were so many things I had learnt in my undergraduate degree but then as I was doing my Masters doing my research. It's like my brain was expanded I got to learn so much about so many different things, I met a lot of incredible people from all over the world, it was amazing. The people, the staff, my fellow students the close nit environment, all those counted.

Video profile: Virginie Lacroix, MSc International Development (Governance and Statebuilding)

Description
I choose to study at IDD mainly because they have Governance and State-building specialisation. They teach a lot about conflict and post-conflict it's one of the best schools for international development in the UK and it's very good for governance and civil servant management and that's what I was looking for so that's why I came here.
