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.

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.
