ICTP offers a number of educational opportunities, many of which lead to a graduate degree. The Postgraduate Diploma Programme, for students from developing countries who usually have already completed their masters, is an intensive, year-long study programme that prepares students for further study at universities around the world. The Sandwich Training Education Programme, for those already enrolled in Phd programmes in developing countries, supports visits to ICTP or a collaborating institute for a three- to six-month stay each year for three successive years. Fellows work on their PhD theses with their advisors at their home institutes and co-advisors at the hosting institutes. Their PhD is awarded at their home institutes.
ICTP offers master's-level and PhD level study programmes in joint arrangements with other Italian universities. The areas of study include physics, mathematics, medical physics, high performance computing, earth science, and medical physics. Please check the ICTP Programmes page for further details.
ICTP is not a funding institute. It offers training and research opportunities at ICTP's headquarters in Trieste, Italy, as well as throughout the developing world. Please see the About ICTP page for further information about the Centre's mission.
