I’m interested in one of your courses, where can I find more information?

Thank you for your interest in our upcoming course. In order to apply, please fill out a short Application Form and send it back to us – the courses have a limited enrollment policy to maximize participant experience so the sooner the better. You will be contacted by us within 5 working days of receipt of your application. You can also email us at centre@upeace.org with any questions.

Once I am accepted, how do I pay the tuition?

There are two payment options, either by credit card or by wire transfer; a description of both can be found in the Payment Options under the Enroll section of the Web site. Additional details will also be sent in your admission letter.

Are there any pre-requisites for attending a course?

There are no pre-requisites as such, other than an interest in the subject area and completion of an Online Application. Our courses are conducted in English and require at least a high intermediate understanding of the language for successful participation. You will also need reliable internet access that is powerful enough to allow you to download readings and watch videos.

I would like to find out more about some of the shorter workshops mentioned on your website.

We have some workshops that are scheduled regularly (such as Education 2.0 and Positive Leadership), but for the time-being, the shorter workshops are being offered by demand only. We are not offering them in the open-enrollment model at this point in time. That said, if your organization has at least 6 interested participants, contact us! We can arrange a special workshop onsite at your organization’s headquarters or at UPEACE, or we can create an open-enrollment course at UPEACE with your participants as the base.

Where is UPEACE located?

UPEACE is located west of the country’s capital, just outside of Ciudad Colon, on a campus in El Rodeo. The university is situated on 300 hectares of protected land surrounded by nature and just 30 minutes drive from San José International Airport.

My English isn’t high intermediate, do you think this will be a problem?

All classroom activities and readings are conducted in English, even when English is a second language for most of the participants. In order to successfully complete the coursework, you will need to be able to read articles and provide short, written work to show that you are learning the materials.
