Living in Geneva

Geneva   >

As the European headquarters of the United Nations and the most active location in the world for multilateral diplomacy, Geneva is home to dozens international organizations, more than 250 NGOs and 174 state representations, with 29,000 persons employed in this sector.

Cost of Living   >

We encourage students to plan the financial aspects of their programme carefully and well in advance, and to explore all opportunities for financing their studies.

Accomodation   >

Various accomodation options are available for our students. As Geneva has a reliable public transport system which extends to all parts of the city, and even to neighbouring towns in France, you do not necessarily need to live close to our campus.

Visa   >

To prepare for their stay in Geneva, students are advised to begin visa formalities, if applicable, immediately after their place on the course is confirmed.

The Geneva Academy was an essential step in my academic and professional career, since it enabled me to acquire the tools to face professional challenges and master the ‘language’ of international humanitarian law and human rights. After my LLM, I could present myself as a trustworthy candidate with a proven interest in the topics, and the knowledge of how to merge theory and practice in this field.
