We make every effort to keep our admission process as swift as possible. Please note that due to the number of applications received we cannot reply to inquiries asking us to verify receipt of application materials or confirm application status. Thank you for your understanding.
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.
The international environment of the LLM offers a unique opportunity to confront different realities and cultures. The size of classes for optional courses facilitates an interactive dialogue between the professor and students, which in turn produces a vibrant exchange and enables a practical analysis of the subject besides the traditional theoretical one.
