Some Comments[edit]

This is fake university — Preceding unsigned comment added by 197.242.214.113 (talk) 18:53, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

The UN University is the only UN academic body. It offers masters and PHd's please see http://unu.edu/admissions/study#overview

Also UN University is a UN organization and is the sole degree granting entity of the UN. Upeace is a treaty organization endorsed by the UN. It is not a UN entity — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.35.2.106 (talk) 18:43, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

We should clarify that they offer degrees. I thought they were a research-only institution, but apparently they offer at least some postgraduate degrees - http://isp.unu.edu/grad/degrees/index.html

Also it would be useful to compare UNU with the University for Peace, which was also established by the UN, but as I understand has a looser institutional connection to the UN than UNU does. 60.225.114.230 (talk) 11:23, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
