Centre for Transitional Justice and Post-conflict Reconstruction

Collaborative Graduate Program

Admission Requirements

Students who wish to enroll in the Collaborative Graduate Program must first apply to a participating graduate program.

Students who have been admitted to a participating graduate program are then eligible for admission to the collaborative program. Students who have been admitted may enter the Collaborative Graduate Program at either the Master's or Ph.D. level.

Master's students must enroll by the drop date of the core course in Transitional Justice in their first year of study. Ph.D. students must enroll by the drop date of the core course in Transitional Justice in their third year of doctoral studies.

Doctoral students who completed the Collaborative Graduate Program in Transitional Justice and Post-Conflict Reconstruction as Master’s students may apply to join the program again as doctoral students.  There are separate guidelines for these students.

In order to apply for admission to the program, please complete the Application form and the SGPS Admission form:
