The MSc Practising Sustainable Development (ICT4D specialism) brings 
together a community of future responsible leaders in the field of ICT4D. 
Participants come from all over the world, and from diverse professional 
and academic backgrounds.
 
To widen their outlook and optimise their career prospects, participants 
study both the broader context of development and sustainability as well as 
the growing specialist field of information and communication technologies 
for development (ICT4D) within it. The course combines cutting-edge 
teaching by leading experts (incl. Tim Unwin, Katie Willis, Dorothea 
Kleine, David Simon, Yingqin Zheng and David Grimshaw) with rigorous 
training in research methods (quant. and qual., including GIS and 
participatory video) as well as project design, management and monitoring 
and evaluation tools. The emphasis is on participatory, sustainable, 
culturally-sensitive, locally relevant, gender-aware and inclusive 
approaches and appropriate technologies. Working together, learning takes 
place in small groups, in an intellectually exciting and friendly 
atmosphere with individual mentoring by faculty, fostering confident and 
responsible future leaders in the field.
