The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is delighted to offer the Master’s Programme in Public International Law with Sigmund Freud University Vienna (SFU). This programme will combine SFU´s academic strength with UNITAR´s practical focus to deepen students’ knowledge and skills in international law.

This unique training opportunity contains modules on core fields of public international law, and theory and practice of global diplomacy. Students will be trained in legal thinking and core-diplomatic skills to perform strongly in any international context.

It will also give students direct access to the United Nations, offering opportunities for visiting premises, networking and insights into UN career paths. Students can expect to:

  • experience the UN work environment in Vienna first-hand
  • build personal relations with UN experts and staff members
  • benefit from tailormade UN career development sessions
  • gain support and access to entry points into the UN system

The Master’s programme for the upcoming winter semester will be commencing on 1 March 2023. It starts with an introductory week at the Vienna International Center (VIC), where the participants get a first-hand immersive experience into the United Nations ecosystem.

The programme is one year of length, will be delivered entirely in the English language and will take place on-site on SFU´s campus in Vienna, Austria.

In case that due to any COVID-19-related travel restrictions, participants are unable to travel to Austria, their slot will be automatically transferred to the next cohort´s enrolment in 2023 or later, with no additional costs charged.
