Our Students

Geneva Academy’s students discuss after a course Geneva Academy’s students discuss after a course

We attract some of the most experienced and academically qualified students from all over the world. They share their expertise and discuss pressing concerns in the fields of international humanitarian law, human rights protection and transitional justice.

A Diverse and Multicultural Community

In order to make educational opportunities accessible to all, a good proportion of our students receive a partial or full scholarship. This allows talented young people with limited means to study at the Geneva Academy.

Access to a Broad Range of Services

As we are a joint centre of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and the University of Geneva, our students are registered as students of both institutions and therefore benefit from their services, including access to sports and cultural activities, careers advice and language courses.

LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights: What our Students Say

26 January 2017

In this interview, Annabelle Gagnon-Bischoff, currently enrolled in the LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, tells us about the programme and life in Geneva.

Everyone goes through crucial junctures in life. The LLM programme at the Geneva Academy was one for me. I moved from the student phase of my life to its professional stage. The LLM and, more generally, the time spent in such an international, multicultural and stimulating city provided me with all necessary professional means to face the challenges of my early career.
