Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have ensured the continuation of high-quality and interactive teaching for our three master’s programmes via different teaching options and methods adaptable to the health situation: fully on-campus, fully online or hybrid with on-site and online teaching.
Our students have shown a great capacity to adapt to this difficult context, study seriously, evolve as a group and succeed in their exams. Their inputs and feedback have been key in ensuring the constant adaptation and improvement of our teaching in a difficult and rapidly evolving context.
Following the lifting of all sanitary measures by the Federal Council on 16 February 2022, all the courses of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights and of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law will be taught in person, with recordings provided to students who are sick and cannot attend classes.
This does not apply to our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict that takes place entirely online.
We are closely monitoring the evolution of the situation. Our students are regularly informed about changes in the recommendations issued by the FOPH and by the State of Geneva, as well as changes in the measures decided by our two parent institutions – the University of Geneva and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.
Additional measures will be implemented if required by the swiss and/or Geneva authorities to ensure a safe learning environment.
Our professors have gained a great deal of experience with online teaching during the previous academic year when all the courses went online. They are also receiving professional support as well as coaching from our staff.
Extracurricular activities – like events, exchanges with practitioners or seminars – can successfully taking place online if needed.
For this academic year, all the courses of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights and of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law will be taught in person, with recordings provided to students who are sick and cannot attend classes.
We've put in place the necessary IT facilities and support to ensure the smooth running of all our classes in hybrid or online teaching modes if these are required by the evolution of the health situation.
We are adapting rapidly to the situation related to the COVID–19 pandemic and are in a position to ensure continued high quality and interactive teaching for our three master’s programmes.
