Education

Education underpins sustainable development; access to education empowers individuals to break the cycle of poverty, fosters peace by building tolerance among cultures, and promotes gender equality. 

As an educational institution, UNU inherently focuses on creating learning and training opportunities that advance inclusive global development and that foster learning networks to promote regional and local sustainable development initiatives.

UNU offers several postgraduate degree programmes that enhance the capability of young scholars to contribute to the extension, application, and diffusion of knowledge.
