Centre for International Education (CIE)

Education and development in the Global South and the diaspora is the main focus of CIE. Our aim is to undertake research and provide a knowledge hub, insights and findings related to the concerns of lower income countries in different parts of the world seeking to enhance their development. Over the last 20 years, CIE has grown to become one of the largest and most highly rated academic groups of its kind in the UK, with a reputation as a leader in its fields of study and as a centre of excellence.

CIE offers a friendly, supportive and challenging environment in which to debate development issues, theoretical perspectives and methodological positions related to education and development. Its staff support the International Education and Development MA and approximately 30 doctoral candidates on the Education PhD course.

Undergraduates may want to consider complementing their studies with additional 'elective' modules (15 credits each) or 'pathways' (60 credits) in International Education and Development. Details can be found under Customise your course.

The ranking reflects the quality, impact and range of international development research and courses offered across the Sussex campus – in the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), and the University’s School of Global Studies, Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) and Centre for International Education (CIE).

Key Issues in Teacher Education – A sourcebook for Teacher Educators

There is a dearth of evidence-based scholarly resources for training teacher educators in developing countries. This book is a response to this gap.  Written by Janet Stuart, Kwame Akyeampong and Alison Croft, it grew out of the experience and insights they gained while working on the Centre for International Education (CIE) Multi-Site Teacher Education Research (MUSTER) project between 1997 and 2001. As a sourcebook, it is designed to be a resource for people involved in teacher education, especially in the global south, and can be downloaded for personal use or as training material for teacher educators.
