Chats with Our Student Office: A Gateway for Prospective Students

24 November 2023

Applying to our programmes – LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights (LLM) and Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) – and moving to Geneva to study at the Geneva Academy is an important decision and many interrogations can arise in relation to this process:

  • What are the main strengths and components of the LLM?
  • What about the MTJ?
  • What are the differences between these two programmes?
  • What are the entry requirements?
  • How selective is the application process?
  • Am I eligible for a scholarship?
  • What type of professionalizing activities and career support are provided?
  • What about life in Geneva?

To respond to these many questions, we organize online Q&A information sessions for prospective students interested in our LLM and MTJ that allow prospective students to exchange with our Student Office.

‘There are no silly questions and these sessions precisely aim at both presenting our programmes and hearing from prospective students. We very much appreciate these exchanges that allow us to clarify our application process and one’s journey from the submission of an application to the enrolment in our programmes’ explains our Head of Education Dr Clotilde Pégorier.

Upcoming Information Sessions

Upcoming information sessions will take place from 13:30 to 14:30 (Geneva time, CET) on the following dates:

  • 19 January 2024
  • 9 February 2024.

Prior registration is required to attend one of these sessions.
