Universitas 21 Global Citizens is an online leadership development programme, delivered by Common Purpose, a global not-for-profit organisation that specializes in Cross-Boundary Leadership.

How it works?

The course is open to 2,000 students across the U21 global network of 27 universities, spanning 18 countries and 19 time zones. 

Participants will develop ideas together, across borders and time zones, honing skills needed to thrive in the 21st century whilst tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems, outlined in the United Nation Sustainability Goals (UNSDG).  

Each week requires a minimum of three hours of online learning that you can complete in your own time. In addition, during weeks 1 and 2 there are real-time, online reflection workshops, where you will draw on the learning from that week and engage in discussions with other students from across the globe. 

Successful completion of the programme and all activities will earn you the Global Citizenship micro-credential which you can display on your LinkedIn profile, demonstrating that you have developed the skills to tackle complex global issues and stand up as a leader.
