Studying Local and Regional Development

Introduction to the work of CURDS - Andy Pike.

The vibrant research culture in CURDS encompasses our postgraduate community. Postgraduates are seen as an integral part of the Centre’s work. The CURDS staff has longstanding experience in delivering postgraduate programmes and supervising postgraduate research. In total, nearly 60 PhDs and over 60 MA degrees have been awarded since the establishment of CURDS.

Postgraduates are the key resource in renewing the outlook and research foci in the Centre. Indeed, many of the current CURDS staff are former postgraduates who completed their studies in CURDS.

We offer the following forms of postgraduate study:

Taught degrees – MA Local and Regional Development (Research)

Research degrees – Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Master of Philosophy (MPhil)
