Centre of Development Studies


An online platform for alumni was set up initially by Sebastian Manhart and Will Fairbairn, MPhil alumni of the Centre of Development Studies. We have now migrated this original platform to a new provider. 

If you are a current or former MPhil or PhD student at the Centre of Development Studies, and wish to join the community, please email the admin office on  

Please note that user requests can only be approved from current or former students of the Centre of Development Studies MPhil or PhD programmes. Unfortunately we cannot approve requests from course applicants or students who have applied and been made an offer of a place but not yet commenced their studies.

And visit Careers after the MPhil to see some examples of what our MPhil graduates have gone on to do since completing their studies with us.
