Sustainability

The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study. 

 

A PhD in sustainability does not just focus on sustainability practices, but it teaches students to explore their own areas of interest. It is often a student and teacher based course with a focus that is decided upon by both. It often involves research and in-depth understanding of a specific area of sustainability.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.
