During the year, our students benefit from the Career Services of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.
Our campus spans from Geneva’s international area to downtown Geneva with its vibrant cultural life.
Our three master’s programmes are organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
Our events provide a critical and scholarly forum for experts and practitioners to debate topical humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice issues.
Teaching at the Geneva Academy has been an extremely enriching experience, both as a professional and as a human being. The quality of courses taught in the context of the LLM is very high and allows students to gather a solid academic knowledge, as well as a critical appraisal of contemporary issues of international humanitarian, human rights and criminal law.

Two alumni of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, Dražan Djukić and Niccolò Pons, are the editors of an important volume on international humanitarian law that has just been published by Brill Publishers.
