Certificate of Study

Qualified individuals have the opportunity of attending an EGS session without studying for an advanced degree.  These non-matriculated participants will attend the equivalent of a full PACT session in Saas Fee or Malta (6 seminars) and receive recognition for their study.  The only requirements are attendance and the submission of brief response papers for each seminar (these responses are not graded).


Applications to pursue a certificate of study should be made through the normal application portal.  Requirements for admission are comparable to those for the normal degree programs: the equivalent of a B.A. degree or substantial professional experience and achievement.


A certificate is normally earned in the course of a year. But it is possible to receive a certificate of study for participation over a two year period.  In this case, the student will attend more than one session and complete a total of six seminars.
