The United Nations University (UNU) organises a number of specialised non-degree courses and training opportunities throughout the global UNU system each year; these range from single-day workshops to multi-week courses on topics covering the gamut of UNU’s thematic areas of focus.
Some courses allow students to earn credit towards their degree; others lead to a UNU certificate upon completion. Courses maintain a solutions-oriented focus with the aim of providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead the way in addressing globally pressing problems. The solutions-oriented nature and global setting of UNU’s non-degree courses allow for a classroom experience that is unique to a university within the United Nations system.
Application procedures and schedules differ by course and institute. If you are interested in a non-degree programme, please contact the relevant institute directly with any course-specific questions.
