NGO Field Training:

An Introduction to International Development


Join us on a 2-week training course in Africa or Asia, and kick-start your career in the NGO sector.

Are you interested in a career in the NGO sector but need a little taster training? Then this is the Summer course for you.

One of the few training courses to be led by local experts, this is a unique chance to get introductory training in the field with a leading international development organisation.

You will be joining a team of like-minded students to spend 2 weeks in Uganda, Nepal or Sierra Leone* taking part in workshops, tackling group projects, and visiting the programmes that are being delivered on the ground.

(*country dependent on your university group.)
