With the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games drawing near, October 1, 2018, saw the start of the academy’s 4th Master’s Programme in Sport and Olympic Studies, which brings together students whose diverse backgrounds include national sporting associations, educational bodies, and even the PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games. They follow in the footsteps of an expanding network of former graduates who have gone on to join various sport-related organizations, official bodies, and domestic Olympic committees, and TIAS is now inviting applications for the 5th batch of students, scheduled to commence their studies on October 1, 2019, and run through the Tokyo 2020 Games, ending in 2021.
