No, EUCLID is not “accredited” by the United Nations in the sense that the UN is not an academic accrediting agency. The UN (or UNESCO) accredits no one. However, it can be said that EUCLID was verified and vetted by the United Nations Secretariat through a careful process (2009-2010) which resulted in the publication of the EUCLID Charter by the UN Secretariat, under Article 102 of the UN Charter. As a result, the UN Secretariat confirmed in writing that EUCLID degrees were usable for employment in the UN System and that it recognized EUCLID and the other multilateral universities as “accredited.”
EUCLID mains several official websites, which are:
- The official institutional website: http://www.euclid.int
- The official mobile/responsive website: http://m.euclid.int
- The official “School of Global Health and Bioethics” website: http://globalhealth.euclid.int
- The official “School of Theology and Interfaith Studies” website: http://interfaith.euclid.int
EUCLID does not offer full on-campus programs as of 2016. For course or seminars on location, or on-campus joint degree programs, please contact the Secretariat for a list of options.
EUCLID (Euclid University) is a public institution, established and operating under public international law. This explains, in part, its affordable tuition and global partnerships.
Yes, even though there is a small group of universities that function under international law, EUCLID is the only one that has three key features:
- it was established directly by UN Member States, by means of a UN-registered treaty (unlike universities established by international organisations and lacking international legal personality)
- it is global (multi-continental), unlike purely regional universities such as EUI, UCA
- it is multi-disciplinary unlike the University of Peace (photo below) which is treaty-based and global but with a single-issue mandate.
