Current Students



Whether you are an MPhil or PhD, we have a number of online resources available for you to help with your studies. We have digitalised the handbooks so that you can refer to them should you have any questions regarding what is required during your studies here, as well as other support networks in place which we encourage you to use should you need them. 

The MPhil timetable for Michaelmas Term 2018 is now available on the MPhil 'Current Students' page, with digital resources on our online learning platform, 'Moodle'. These resources are regularly updated during the course of the academic year to aid coursework writing and exam study.

For PhDs, you can use the PhD link on the left to find your handbook, and information regarding your Research Methods course and the CDS Seminar Series which gives students the option to present research material to peers. PhD students also have a 'Moodle' page for supplementary material for the programme.

As we approach this anniversary, we are no nearer to knowing the truth of what happened to this promising post-graduate, tortured and killed while pursuing wholly legitimate academic research... It has been especially troubling to note that, in the absence of apparent progress in investigations into Giulio’s death, attention has been turned to his doctoral supervisor, Dr Maha Abdelrahman – an honourable and distinguished scholar..." Stephen J Toope, Vice-Chancellor. To read the message in full, please go to our News page. The message can also be found on the University of Cambridge homepage.

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.
