Centre of Development Studies


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 is available via the University's online timetable. Other resources are on our online learning platform, Moodle. These resources are regularly updated during the course of the academic year.

For PhDs, your handbook, including information regarding your Research Methods course is available on Moodle, the online student learning environment. Details of the CDS Seminars are posted on Moodle and under the Events tab on this website. PhD students can access supplementary materials for the programme on Moodle.
