UCL Bartlett's Development Planning Unit (DPU) conducts world-leading research and postgraduate teaching that helps to build the capacity of national governments, local authorities, NGOs, aid agencies and businesses working towards socially just and sustainable development in the global South. Our programmes are practically orientated, providing students with the academic skills they will require after graduating but also with a wide range of real-world skills, e.g. report writing and public speaking. The unit supports networking with individuals (including alumni), community organisations, governmental and intergovernmental organisations, NGOs, and public sector institutions which share the DPU vision, and our graduates pursue a wide range of occupations within these areas.
