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.

For Students Preselected for a Scholarship

To confirm their wish to be considered for a scholarship, preselected students will have to pay a non-refundable deposit of CHF 150.

I think the LLM at the Geneva Academy is an incredible opportunity to learn about humanitarian law, international criminal law and human rights, being challenged daily by professors who are internationally renowned experts.
