The IGS North-South in short
The IGS North-South is a graduate school of the Universities of Basel, Bern, Lausanne, and Zurich in Switzerland. It is dedicated to advancing sustainable development worldwide. It focuses on postgraduate education at the PhD level to establish a leading international research network that analyses the impacts and opportunities of global change. The IGS North-South emphasizes an integrative, partnership-based research approach, as well as innovation and application. More than 100 PhD candidates from around the world are currently enrolled in the programme.
Since the IGS North-South offers a supplementary
certificate, the School does not provide funding for PhD research or
salaries. To gain admission to the IGS North-South, the PhD applicant
must be accepted by an eligible professor and enrolled at one of the
participating universities in Switzerland or at an accredited external
research institution partnering with the IGS North-South. Potential
applicants have either already started their PhD projects or are just
about to begin.
Most courses of the IGS North-South are free of charge, except for the annual Summer School (read more
