The Global Summer Program (GSP) is an exciting learning experience that connects students from IARU universities with their peers from around the world. GSP participants have the unique opportunity to come together to explore and discuss critical issues in a global perspective that require multidisciplinary approaches.
GSP courses are fun, but intense. Days are full as the classes are rigorous, requiring full-time commitment for the whole duration of the course.

National University of Singapore
University of Cambridge

University of Copenhagen
University of Oxford
The University of Tokyo
This course is aimed at bachelor students from all disciplines who are considering further studies in graduate-level research.
Students are welcome from all disciplines but should have demonstrated interest in research during their studies.
Course: Mobilising Research
Mobilising Research examines the role of research for the advancement of society. This intensive, interdisciplinary course will equip students to put research into action and reset the research agenda towards the advancement of the global public good.
Students are exposed to how scholarly inquiry is conducted in a range of disciplines outside their own through interactive sessions and site visits to leading research facilities on campus. The exposure to different mindsets, approaches, and cultural norms will challenge students to see how research can be used to make positive change.
Students will explore a complex global problem of their choosing, and understand how research can be used to navigate and shape public opinion about the issue.For more information on the course, please visit the course page on the IARU GSP website.
