Research

Complete a 3-5,000 word research assignment in the form of a research paper, a modern slavery risk assessment, or a programme evaluation. Each student will be guided by a supervisor with whom they will be matched prior to the programme to guide them in their research. All research projects will be assessed by a panel consisting of SJRC's faculty and selected partners at the end of the programme. 

Seminars

Attend seminars taught by SJRC's faculty and partners in a variety of topics, including community-based development, non-profit management and governance, modern slavery, programme evaluation, and research skills development. These seminars will be taught at SJRC and will not be graded. Seminars are designed to introduce students to key concepts in development and charitable work.
