The UniPID Member Universities offer a joint virtual Minor in Development Studies called Sustainability in Development for students who seek a more comprehensive programme in development studies.

The Minor is comprised of at least five (5) courses (worth 5 ECTS credits each) for a minimum total of twenty-five (25) ECTS credits. Students are free to choose courses from the list of courses offered to tailor an individual study programme but at least two courses should be general level. The registration for the Minor is continuous and the programme is free of charge for all students at member universities.

Registration for the Minor programme is required. Students wishing to participate should register as soon as possible, and ensure that the Minor can be included in their degree at their home university. UniPID will issue a certificate for students who complete the Minor. In order to get a certificate, students should send the UniPID Coordination Unit a transcript of records.

In courses where participant numbers are limited, priority will be given to the students enrolled in the UniPID Minor programme. When registering for a course you wish to include in your UniPID Minor, be sure to select the "as part of UniPID minor" option in the registration form.
