Admission


Students admitted to the MA program must hold a Bachelor's degree or its equivalent. Since Peace, Development, Security and International Conflict Transformation is a transdisciplinary field of study, there are no restrictions as to the subject area of one's degree. Students are required to provide an application essay, stating the basis of their interest in Peace, Development, Security and International Conflict Transformation, and how this relates to their career objectives. Priority in selection is given to students with relevant professional experience and high grades in previous education.Students, whose native language is not English must provide official English language test scores (TOEFL or IELTS). This requirement may, under certain circumstances be waived for students who are non-native English speakers but have completed their third-level education in English.

All students admitted for a term participate in the preparatory online seminar of the First Modular Period. Students who do not fulfill the academic requirements of the First Modular Period will not be admitted to continue into the presence phase (Modular Period II-V).

Students accepted into the Masters Degree program will be given registration and provisional acceptance into following terms. Students whose work is insufficient for graduate level work will not continue past the first term.
