The UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) is now accepting applications for September 2017 admission to its Master of Science in Sustainability programme and its PhD in Sustainability Science programme. The application deadlines are 28 February 2017 for the MSc programme, and 28 April 2017 for the PhD programme.
Students accepted into the programmes will benefit from the unique opportunity to study in Tokyo at a global university within the framework of the United Nations. Both programmes are intended for recent graduates, professionals, and practitioners wishing to develop an international career through employment in UN agencies, other international organisations, governments, civil society, or the private sector. Enrolled students also will have the opportunity to obtain a joint diploma offered by UNU-IAS and the University of Tokyo Graduate School of Frontier Science (UT-GSFS), if they complete additional requirements.
Those who expect to receive a required degree before September 2017 are eligible to apply.
Applicants must submit all application documents online. Please visit the UNU-IAS website pages for the degree programmes to find out more about the application requirements and process. Please contact UNU-IAS through the online inquiry form if you have any questions.
