Our LLM students have the opportunity, during Spring Semester, to acquire first-hand professional experience via internships with Geneva-based humanitarian and human rights actors. These include the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OCHCR) and the International Law Commission.
Places in this internship programme are limited and offered via a competitive selection process carried out by our partner organizations. For selected students, internships replace two optional courses and can be validated for 6 ECTS credits.
For the 2016–2017 academic year, we are offering students internships with the following institutions:*
In July, when classes are over, students can extend their residence permit for up to six months (i.e. until December) to undertake an internship or temporary assignment in a Geneva-based organization and/or look for a job in Geneva or Switzerland.
*This list is subject to change.
We have had several opportunities to work with Geneva Academy students over the years and have greatly benefited from their passionate and competent support in drafting fictitious case studies for student competitions we organize all over the world, as well as editing articles for the International Review of the Red Cross.
