Welcome to The Global Centre for Advanced Studies


It’s a great pleasure to welcome you to The Global Centre for Advanced Studies (GCAS). GCAS was founded in 2013 in the USA by over 100 leading intellectuals, writers, philosophers, artists and social scientists with a two-fold mission:

  1. Provide students (we call them “Researchers”) with the highest quality education, debt-free; and
  2. Provide a learning environment bold enough to forge new horizons of thinking, innovation and the transformation of the world into a healthier place to live for all.

What began as a dream has developed into a global network on five continents with seven centres throughout the world, including New York, Santa Barbara, Dublin, Ireland, Kampala, Uganda, Jakarta, Sydney, Santa Barbara and Santiago, Chile. We have reached over 2.5 million people and held over 50 seminars, international conferences, and workshops.

We believe that learning and growing intellectually and personally is crucial for our time where truth and facts are determined more by economic power and less by history, communities and the social good. We invite you to join with us as we expand our collaborative de-centralized academic community grounded locally and connected globally.


We are a full member college of Woolf, offering accredited degrees under the European Standards and Guidelines and in line with the Policy of Quality Assurance; courses with ECTS credits are specifically designated as such, and all degrees offered are accredited. As an independent and full member of Woolf, we admit our own faculty and students and are committed to academic and teaching excellence.
