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.
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.
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.
To confirm their wish to be considered for a scholarship, preselected students will have to pay a non-refundable deposit of CHF 100.
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.
To teach International Humanitarian Law (IHL) at the Geneva Academy is a unique pleasure and challenge: nowhere else will you find so many brilliant young people from all around the world, keen to specialize in IHL and to work in this field; nowhere else will I be subject to so many challenging questions on the most cutting-edge IHL issues, many of which I discover thanks to the students, but some of which I am perfectly unable to answer.
