    No, they are different subjects (with some crossover). You're going to have to do some of your own research on this.

    More differences than similarities though. International development focuses more on economic development and aid and things like that while international relations leans more to politics. To apply for both using one PS would be damn tough in my opinion.

    I'm applying to do IR. Sussex told me if I wanted to do the joint degree it made NO DIFFERENCE to my chances if my PS was just for IR.... but that's only one uni, Leeds and UEA may be different
