The United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) is 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 master's degree programme, and 28 April 2017 for the doctoral degree programme. Some scholarships are available for the applicants from developing countries.
Students accepted for 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 organizations, governments, civil society or the private sector. Enrolled students will also 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 also eligible to apply.
