I was keen to enrol onto a masters programme that offered practical skills and knowledge that could be applied in a non-academic professional context such as in CSOs and development consultancies. The MSc Research for International Development course at SOAS offered just that. Modules cut across both international development and economics, thus offering a wider skill set, which I found very useful.
I had the opportunity to meet people from across the world, who offered insights and perspectives that were very diverse, thus enriching the overall experience of studying at SOAS.
I currently work at UNICEF UK, where I manage partnerships with funders who support UNICEF’s UK and international programmes.
