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, international criminal law and transitional justice.
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.
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.

At first, I thought distance learning was going to be an overwhelming challenge, but over time I have come to realize that it is almost the same as attending the classes in person as it was very interactive. It was particularly convenient in the situation of a global pandemic and time-saving for a person who is maintaining a full-time job as well.
