The tuition fee for the LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights is 18,000 Swiss Francs.
To confirm their admission, students must pay a non-refundable deposit of 3,000 Swiss Francs within a month of receiving an offer.
The remaining balance is payable in three equal instalments of 5,000 Swiss Francs, due no later than 1 September, 1 December and 1 February respectively. Details of how to pay will be included in the admission letter.
While the focus is on humanitarian law in all its aspects, the LLM also provides a thorough base in other aspects of international law, which makes it a versatile degree that can lead to a wide variety of career paths, such as mine, working for the Belgian asylum office.
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.
Our three master’s programmes are organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
According to international rankings, Geneva offers an excellent quality of life and is one of the most popular places to live.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
