Tuition Fee

LLM students during a course LLM students during a course

The tuition fee for the LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights is 18,000 Swiss Francs.

We offer a limited number of partial and full scholarships for the LLM. Partial scholarships cover tuition fees. Full scholarships cover tuition fees and living expenses in Geneva for 10 months. You can refer to the scholarship section for details about eligibility and application.

Admission Fee

In order for their applications to be reviewed, all applicants must submit within the week following the submission of their application a non-refundable admission fee of CHF 100.

For Students Applying without a Scholarship

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 100.

The international environment of the LLM offers a unique opportunity to confront different realities and cultures. The size of classes for optional courses facilitates an interactive dialogue between the professor and students, which in turn produces a vibrant exchange and enables a practical analysis of the subject besides the traditional theoretical one.
