International Courses at United Nations University

25 02 2009


The UNU International Courses (UNU/IC) are organized annually for a select group of postgraduate students and professionals in various occupations (with a college or university degree) in Japan and abroad who wish to pursue careers in international fields in public-service or private organizations, including the United Nations, multinational corporations and non-governmental organizations, as well as national foreign service organizations. The courses are designed to provide analyses of global issues from both theoretical and empirical perspectives.
United Nations University will organize the tenth regular session of its six-week UNU International Courses at UNU Centre in Tokyo, Japan, from 11 May through 19 June.
Core Course
UN System: Pressing Issues and Sustainable Solutions
Optional Courses
  • Peace and Human Rights
  • Global Change and Sustainability
  • International Development and Cooperation

Core Course: This is compulsory for all students. There shall be one lecture of 120-minute duration (60 minutes of lecture and 60 minutes of Q&A) and two sessions of tutorials of 90-minute duration per session.

Optional Sessions: Students are allowed to choose one or two courses. There will be eighteen 90-minute sessions per course (three sessions per week over the six-week course period). The courses will involve considerable reading and study, but will be scheduled to allow students to have sufficient preparatory and review time for each session.

Participants from developing countries* who take two courses (Core and an Optional Course) and who can demonstrate a need for financial assistance are invited to apply for a limited number of UNU full and partial fellowships.
