Short Programmes

Dedicated short programmes are available for both Faculty and students. The content and timing of these programmes may be tailored to individual requirements and they can therefore vary in duration: from a few days to a complete semester. Universities which regularly send students include Arcadia University's International Peace and Conflict Resolution Programme, Pennsylvania; Boston University, Massachusetts; Furman University, South Carolina and Creighton University, Omaha.

Visiting groups may discuss individual requirements with the Director of the Institute, Dr Dominic Bryan. Fees for these courses depend on content and duration.

The Institute also offers a four-week pre-semester winter programme in January which includes a two-week internship with a local organisation.
