About Us


Our Story

The Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies, (CIAPS) was founded in 2015 as an innovative, educational and professional institution for forward-thinking professionals.
Our intellectually challenging programmes are designed for the most able students, enabling them to expand their critical reflection and creativity, and preparing and equipping the next generation of global citizens to lead and inspire.
Globalisation makes us increasingly interdependent upon one another, and in order to successfully operate in such a context, the next generation of citizens must be fully exposed to the best and most progressive international practices. They must be fully trained to understand their reality, and encouraged to be able to competently and confidently operate in a global environment. As part of their programme, CIAPS students undergo training which will equip them to liaise successfully with their counterparts throughout the world.
