UWTSD Masters in Global Citizenship and Sustainable Leadership

University of Wales Trinity Saint David invites applications from Ukrainian nationals affected by the Russian invasion for a fully funded, two-year-long Masters in Global Citizenship and Sustainable Leadership. It is a unique interdisciplinary programme which provides a distinctive learning experience to develop global citizens and leaders of tomorrow.

Based on a secluded Welsh campus in the town of Lampeter, you will have an opportunity to study and research topics as varied as approaches to global citizenship and leadership, memory wars in Eastern Europe, global citizenship and diverse global problems such as peacebuilding, human rights, the crisis of labour rights at the global level, the gender gap and discrimination against women or the worldwide refugee crisis. You will work with experts from the fields of law, politics, international relations and history and UN practitioners.

Broadly based around the UN Sustainable Development Goals, this programme will prepare you to critically engage with the key global challenges of the 21st century.

This programme is designed to enable you to develop the necessary skills for global citizenship, and those required to lead beyond national boundaries of the 21st century.
