Centre for International Development Issues Nijmegen (CIDIN) The Advanced Master in International Development (AMID) programme of the Radboud University Nijmegen (RU) is a one-year dual Master programme. The starting point for AMID is that positive social change can only be realised in collaboration between different actors such as government, private sector, NGOs and knowledge institutes. The complexity of problems requires a combination of innovative and critical thinking with specialized practical skills. AMID offers recently graduated Master students a programme that combines academic training and practical experience. Trainees work four days a week at an organisation engaged in issues related to sustainable development and attend lectures at the university on Fridays.
