United Nations Scholarship for Information Service 2018

Applications are welcome from international and qualified candidates for United Nations Scholarship for Information Service 2018. Applicants seeking financial assistance are required to apply immediately.

About United Nations Scholarship

Each year, as part of the educational outreach programmes undertaken by the United Nations, the Information Service at Geneva organizes the Graduate Study Programme. This seminar provides an opportunity for outstanding graduate and postgraduate students from all over the world to deepen their understanding of the principles, purposes and activities of the United Nations and its related agencies through first-hand observation and study at the United Nations Office at Geneva.

 Participation in the programme is free. The United Nations does not make any financial contribution towards the travel costs and residential expenses of participants. Governments or universities may offer grants to selected candidates. Candidates should seek advice from their universities on this point.

Eligibility Criteria: The majority of the sessions will be held in English, therefore absolute fluency in English is essential. As several sessions will be held in French, solid working knowledge of French is also required.

The 56th Graduate Study Programme will be held at the Palais des Nations from 2 to 13 July 2018. It will comprise lectures given by senior members of the United Nations and the Geneva-based specialized agencies. The GSP theme for 2018 will be: Human rights at a crossroads: where we stand in 2018.

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But in this milestone year, human rights violations are part of major humanitarian and political crises. At the same time, international scrutiny over human rights issues, carried out via multilateral human rights mechanisms, has never been stronger. And the breadth and depth of the international human rights system’s focus has been expanding to address topics and communities which have not always received the attention they deserved: from gender-based violence and LGBTI rights, to the human rights of refugees and migrants, as well as challenges to human rights posed by the digital age and by climate change.

Finally, we have a universal roadmap for development, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which is premised on a foundation of human rights. Human rights are an integral part of the 2030 Agenda and of every one of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This is why implementing the SDGs requires institutional reform at the international and national levels, to truly mainstream human rights.

The application form is to be filled in on our website, accompanied by a copy of the applicant’s passport, a letter of recommendation (in English or French only) from a university or governmental authority, proof of current enrolment (at the time of application) in a Master’s degree programme or a postgraduate degree programme (or equivalent) and university diplomas obtained.

Deadline: 2nd March 2018. Please note that incomplete applications will not be taken into consideration.

Students Visa Tips To Study In United Kingdom – 2018

Eager students and anxious parents are usually concerned about UK student visa application. The UK government wants students from all over the world to apply and study in UK institutions.

It helps to build close ties between the UK and other countries. It also has cultural benefits.

The main requisites of a smooth UK student visa application process are that one of the educational institutions endorsed by the Department of Education and Skills should accept the student, and the candidate should secure funds for the duration of the course. The need to show liquid funds that would cover costs of the entire course plus living expenses at the time of applying for the visa is non-negotiable.

There is also the need to apply for the visa as early as possible or as soon as you receive the offer letter.

Many students prefer applying to study in the UK because of the prestigious UK institutions whose certificates are acceptable world wide. There is also availability of one-year master course as well as many scholarships.

Another appeal is that students can take up part time work and apply for work permits after they complete their courses.

The International Graduate Scheme allows students to find work on completion of their course.

The students use the extra time on their visas to apply for jobs and their employee applies for a work permit for them. This is very convenient for the students.

Scotland allows up to two years work visas after graduation. Student visa application form for UK is available at the UK Embassy or UK High Commission in your country.
