Univerersitas 21 (U21) is an international network of leading research-intensive universities. Established in 1997, Univesitas 21 currently includes twenty seven member universities in seventeen countries. These partner institutions are committed to advancing the internationalism of education and offer exemplary tertiary study across a variety of disciplines.

The U21 Diploma in Global Issues is the program offered by the U21 network. It is an undergraduate multidisciplinary concurrent diploma administered through the Faculty of Arts and taught by the University of Melbourne (Australia) in conjunction with the Universities of British Columbia (Canada), Birmingham (United Kingdom), Nottingham (United Kingdom), Queensland (Australia), Lund (Sweden) and Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico).

The Diploma is designed to address the particular demands of undergraduate students who have an interest in global studies and who wish to combine this study with a bachelor’s degree at the University of Melbourne. It is ideal for students who are considering careers that require an international perspective to gain knowledge of the current principles relating to globalisation and an understanding of the connection between individuals, societies and countries.

Students are expected to complete fifty percent of the Diploma through at least one other partner university and a minimum of four subjects must be taken online.

NOTE: This course is not registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) and cannot be offered to international students that require a student visa to study in Australia.
