Candidates must have:
Each application is considered in its entirety, including transcripts, extracurricular and voluntary activities, work experience, personal background, letters of recommendation, personal statement and language skills.
In considering each individual, the Admissions Committee seeks not only to identify characteristics that are important to academic success in the programme, but also other qualities that promote diversity and excellence in the student body.
Most courses are taught in English. Some exams can be taken in French and questions in class may be asked in either language. The LLM paper can be written in French.
The Geneva Academy offers an exceptional quality of training in international humanitarian law, international human rights law, public international law, refugee law, and international criminal law. The interdisciplinarity and rigour of this programme greatly contributed to my professional development, both at the international criminal tribunals in the Hague and at the ICRC.
We are a leading education and research institution in international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Our LLM students have the opportunity to acquire first-hand professional experience via internships with Geneva-based humanitarian and human rights actors
We offer scholarships to outstanding students who are unable to secure the funding required to cover tuition fees and/or the cost of living in Geneva.
