The Geneva Academy brings together a vibrant, intimate and multicultural community of around 100 talented students, leading professors and key experts in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
As the European headquarters of the United Nations and the most active location in the world for multilateral diplomacy, Geneva is home to dozens international organizations, more than 250 NGOs and 174 state representations, with 29,000 persons employed in this sector.
Various accomodation options are available for our students. As Geneva has a reliable public transport system which extends to all parts of the city, and even to neighbouring towns in France, you do not necessarily need to live close to our campus.
The Geneva Academy Student Council promotes the interests and welfare of Geneva Academy students. This ensures they all enjoy the richest student experience possible during their stay in Geneva.
Student life also extends beyond classrooms and libraries to the many social and cultural events and sports activities that take place throughout the year.
While studying at the Geneva Academy, you can take a wide variety of French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese or Arabic language courses.
As members of this group, our alumni will be able to connect with each other, share information regarding job opportunities and internships, plan informal meetings and networking events in their area, discuss topical issues, share articles and experiences, and more.
