The School of International Development (DEV) at the University of East Anglia is a leading global centre of excellence in research and teaching in international development. With around 40 academic staff the School is committed to making a difference, contributing to knowledge and providing policy advice and guidance on major global challenges such as poverty reduction and environmental sustainability.
The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to International Development.
If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.
Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys).
We are very pleased that you have joined us in the School of International Development at UEA, or DEV, and would like to warmly welcome you to the School! I hope that the high quality teaching the school offers will combine with your hard work to give you an experience that is exciting, challenging and ultimately highly profitable for your future career.
The School of International Development (DEV) is a lively, research-oriented department and a leading global centre of excellence in research and teaching in international development.
We are a School of around 50 academic staff with a diverse set of interests. The thing that unites us is a commitment to making a difference, contributing to knowledge and providing advice and guidance to policy makers and practitioners on major global challenges such as poverty reduction and environmental sustainability.
The School’s research performance was judged to be internationally excellent and among the top three development studies departments in the country, according to the last UK government research assessment exercise.
You won’t just be joining a department that prides itself on the excellence of its research and teaching, but a caring community of staff and fellow students who make being part of DEV such a wonderful experience. While I won’t be able to meet you in person at the Head of School Welcome this year, there will be other opportunities for less formal interaction during your three or four years in DEV. In the meantime, on behalf of the School of International Development, I would like to wish you a stimulating and successful stay at UEA.
