FAQs

  • Does ICTP offer degree programmes?

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.
