*The information provided below come late for any registration for the upcoming session of the Oxford Course 2006, on Human Development set for September.

Nonetheless they migth prove handy for the next session scheduled in September 2008.




The course is jointly organized by the National Human Development Report (NHDR) Unit - Human Development Report Office (HDRO), the Department of International Development at the University of Oxford (Queen Elizabeth House) and the Human Development and Capability Association (HDCA). It will be held 10-23 September at Magdalen College, Oxford, UK.

The 2006 course has been filled. This year, we received well over 350 applications for the 50 available spots. Since we had such a large pool of applicants, we were unable to accept scores of extremely well-qualified professionals, and the decision-making process was extremely difficult. The wish to ensure geographic balance, gender balance, and representation from a wide variety of types of institutions in the course were important considerations in the selection process. The course is held every other year, and will be next offered in September 2008.

The course will draw on the extensive intellectual resources of Oxford, as well as the practical experience of leading analysts from international development agencies and institutions.
