Development Studies Week 2021

Development Studies Week 2021 provided an exciting introduction to where and how we teach postgraduate development studies and the top careers our graduates go onto.

Each School and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), provided daily online events introducing you to their disciplines, entry requirements, unique benefits and career prospects.

Sessions were hosted by a range of leading academics and featured former international students (alumni), who gave an overview of their careers and answered questions in webinars and live interactive Instagram Live sessions.

The week also featured research talks and sample lectures, allowing students to get a taste of the teaching style, what it's like to study at Sussex, and the leading work our academics do in their areas.
