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

The course is open to 800 students across the U21 global network of 28 universities, spanning 20 countries and 19 time zones. Throughout the programme participants will engage with and learn from students across the globe. 

The three-week programme launches on Monday 11 March. Each week requires a minimum of 3 hours of online learning that you can complete in your own time. In addition, 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.
