International Development students have the opportunity to attend a workshop at Cumberland Lodge. There are two workshops, one dedicated to MSc Development Management and the other to MSc Development Studies and MSc IDHE.
The St Catherine's Foundation, Cumberland Lodge, Windsor Great Park, was set up in order to provide a relaxed and quiet atmosphere where students and teachers could meet in order to discuss matters of interest to them. It is hoped that students who attend will gain ideas and inspiration from listening to seminars given by invited speakers and from the debate that follows.
Cumberland Lodge is a spacious 17th century house set in superb grounds. Student accommodation is in twin-bedded rooms. There are facilities there for outdoor and indoor sports and rooms for parties/discos, etc. There will be seminars given by guest speakers during the workshops, but there is also time to relax and enjoy the house and grounds. Places are limited so early booking is advisable. You will receive email notification when booking opens. The full cost for 2013-14 is £99, which includes food, but not bar bills.
NB: Cumberland Lodge is an historic and very beautiful house, and the cost of upkeep is extremely onerous. Consequently, there is a strict policy of no smoking or food/drink consumption in any of the bedrooms. Fines of £100 will apply to any academics or students if a bedroom has been soiled in any way.
