The UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) is now accepting applications for their postgraduate degree programmes: Master of Science in Sustainability and PhD in Sustainability Science. The application deadlines are 28 February 2018 for the master’s programme and 27 April 2018 for the doctoral programme. Both programmes will start in September 2018.
The UNU-IAS postgraduate degree programmes aim to produce policymakers and researchers of tomorrow, who will be at the forefront of global efforts towards a more sustainable future.
Students benefit from the unique opportunity to study in central Tokyo at a global university within the framework of the United Nations. Students gain both academic knowledge and practical research skills by actively contributing to the institute’s policy-oriented research projects.
Both programmes are intended for recent graduates, professionals, and practitioners aiming to pursue internationally focused careers through employment in international organisations, government agencies, civil society, or the private sector. All lectures are conducted in English.
Enrolled students have the opportunity to obtain credits not only from UNU-IAS but also from other leading universities in Japan.
