TIDI PhD Module: Adapting Research Methodologies for Developing Country Conditions


The Trinity International Development Initiative (TIDI) offers an annual module for Ireland-based doctoral students entitled “Adapting Research Methodologies for Developing Country Conditions’.
This is a multidisciplinary module which aims to provide training in the methodological challenges of conducting research in developing countries and to raise awareness among Ireland-based doctoral students about cross-cutting development issues that shape the research environment.

The module is offered in compressed format each November to doctoral students from any discipline who are conducting researching (or preparing for research) in the developing world and/or on topics relating to international development. Other students (e.g. Master’s students) who are considering undertaking research in developing countries are also welcome to apply. While the module is largely aimed at TCD students, a limited number of places will be made available for students from other institutions.

Register here  by 28th October.
