Target group

Applications are invited from graduate students, civil servants early in their careers, and those working for NGO’s. 

Advanced undergraduates also qualify for the Using Logic Models to Evaluate Social Programs: Before, During, and After Program Operations sub-course.


We assume no more than a first degree in one of the social sciences or law (or, as an exception, in other disciplines). For the Policy Evaluation for Civil Servants and NGO executives sub course we will compose groups for group work so that students with a more advanced quantitative background (Economics or Mathematics) can use their forte.

Language requirement

The language of instruction is English, thus all applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at seminars and workshops. Some of the shortlisted applicants may be contacted for a telephone interview.
