It is a great pleasure to present the new Master’s Programme Global Demography at the University of Vienna, one of the three pillars of the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, OeAW, University of Vienna). The Programme will start with its first cohort of students in October 2021. The application period runs from 1 March to 3 May 2021.
The principal aim of the Master’s Programme in Global Demography at the University of Vienna is to give students a strong scientific grounding in the analysis and forecasting of demographic developments across the globe – in particular, fertility, mortality and migration trends as well as human capital formation. Guided by leading experts in the field, students will be given the opportunity to explore the multidimensional ramifications and implications of demographic change on economic, social, and environmental issues.
Besides this extensive Master’s Programme the following advantages await future students:
*Being part of a diverse, international community and the world-class academic network of the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, OeAW, University of Vienna)
*Living and studying in the city with the highest quality of life
*Marginal tuition fees – at most 750 EUR/semester even for non-EU/EEA citizens; Waivers exist especially for students from developing countries
*Scholarships might be available for students from Eastern Europe, Central Asia and developing countries regarding living expenses
*Courses in fall 2021 are considered to be held online if future students should be delayed in coming to Vienna due to Covid-19.
