DEP20 Prof David Sanderson profile

At Oxford Brookes is currently running a fundraising campaign for its Development and Emergency Practice (DEP) course This is as part of DEP20 celebrating the 20th anniversary of the award winning and internationally renowned Masters qualification. Oxford Brookes University is committed to graduating students with the capacity to live lives of consequence as engaged global citizens. The DEP programme plays a significant role in this and it is the University's aim to secure financial support for CENDEP in 2011 / 12 in the form of scholarships and bursaries to allow students who might not otherwise be able to afford it, to participate in the very beneficial work of this Centre. CENDEP attracts students from all backgrounds, from experienced practitioners to those new to development. Well over 500 students have graduated from its programmes since 1991 from many countries. Many of them have gone on to hold influential positions in community based groups, NGOs, UN and donor bodies (including The Red Cross, DIFD and Oxfam) as well as governments and the military. The senior management of the University are committed to celebrating the 20th Anniversary of CENDEP by creating a Scholarship Fund that will support students over the next 10 years and our target for this is £100,000 (the equivalent of 20 scholarships). Many students make considerable sacrifices to be on this course, both financially and personally. There are times when excellent students dedicated to the humanitarian cause have to make the difficult decision not to join this course because of financial constraints. A scholarship can make all the difference to a student when deciding whether to come and study on the CENDEP Masters course.
