Kimmage Development Studies Centre

For almost 40 years  Kimmage Development Studies Centre has facilitated education and training for development practitioners working in a range of occupations from over 65 countries. We also provide capacity development services devoted to the professional upgrading of Irish and overseas-based international development personnel.

Full Time Study

Our academic programmes reflect a combination of formal and non-formal educational methodologies and are run at undergraduate and post graduate (MA and Post Grad Diploma) levels. Explore theories, analyse development policies & practices, and build skills.

Distance & Part-Time Study

We offer both academic courses and professional training courses on part-time and on flexible, and distance learning formats. We also deliver an evening course called ‘Understanding Development’ for those who wish to update on current development issues.

Training & Consultancies

We build the skills and capacity of development practitioners, organisations, missionary congregations and in-country partners through professional training courses, Kimmage Open and Distance Education (KODE), and organisational support.

Our ethos is embodied in a teaching approach which is based on participatory learning and critical thinking on development practice which seeks to empower course participants to be leaders in their own communities and active facilitators of change.
