Visa Requirements for our Face-to-Face Courses
Residence Permit (Aufenthaltserlaubnis)
This postgraduate programme offers both online and face-to-face short courses which aim to expand in-depth knowledge on various aspects of social protection schemes as well as impart the technical background and practical skillsets needed to support the building or expansion of social protection schemes and the policies which support them. Participants of the programme will subsequently be capable of making significant contributions to the elaboration and implementation of reforms necessary for achieving and maintaining viable, sustainable and efficient social protection systems which effectively and equitably meet current and future socio-economic and gender-specific challenges.
