UNESCO-IHE conducts a wide range of short, intensive and highly specialized courses which are aimed at upgrading and refreshing the knowledge and skills of mid-career professional and senior experts.

Short courses are meant for professionals – or groups of professionals – with a specific area of interest and a limited amount of time. The focus and content of short courses vary from specialised and technical matters to challenges and approaches in management. Didactical methods used in these short courses include lectures, individual or group exercises in the classroom, behind the computer, or in the laboratory.

Fieldwork, excursions and field visits to relevant sites often are a part of a short course, allowing the participants to come into contact with practical examples of the theory offered. Through case studies, role-plays and workshops, content is made more interactive, and experience that the participants already have is shared.

Admission Criteria
You should at least have a Bachelor Degree in a relevant field of study, some years of working experience and a good command of the English language.

NFP, MSP and SIDS Fellowships
Most of our short courses are eligible for NFP, MSP and SIDS Fellowships. Candidates from eligible countries are always encouraged to apply for one. 


You will need to have academic admission at UNESCO-IHE before you apply for an fellowship. Please be aware that the UNESCO-IHE application deadline and the fellowship application deadlines are different.


You may register by filling out the online application form available at the webpage of the Short Course of your preference. Within 15 working days you will be notified about the outcome of your application. You will receive more details about how to apply for the fellowship when you are academically admitted. In case you would like to be nominated for a NFP/MSP fellowship
