GDI students on field trip

Fieldwork

Most of our GDI Masters programmes include an extended fieldwork visit, which is an integral part of the programme.

Fieldwork gives GDI taught master's students an opportunity to put their skills to the test in a real environment.

Recent field work assignments in Cyprus and Uganda allowed students to augment their classroom learning.
