Last year, GSD was delighted to establish an exciting collaboration at postgraduate level with the programmes in International Development Studies (MAIDS-GRID) at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, the highest-ranked university in Thailand. This partnership was conceptualised under the Thai-UK World-class University Consortium, funded by the British Council, which aims to bring together Thai and UK institutions for internationalisation and to enhance teaching and research through knowledge exchange and sharing.
MAIDS-GRID at Chulalongkorn and GSD at Warwick both offer international postgraduate programmes in sustainable development and development studies, which share several similarities, including a transdisciplinary teaching and research philosophy, an international student body and comparable programme size.
The World PhD Students Sustainability Summit 2022 was organised by the European School of Sustainability Science and Research, the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme, and the European Alliance for Sustainability Research Rationale. One of our PhD students, Grace Kamanga, presented her research at the summit. Find out about Grace's experience of the summit and the research she presented.
