Prospective students

Welcome to ISS!

ISS is a diverse intellectual community that challenges and debates with conventional, mainstream approaches that tend to oversimplify the study and practice of development.  More than 12,000 people from all over the world have studied here. ISS has become well-known as a truly international centre in a friendly, vibrant and cosmopolitan learning environment.
