Our Students

Geneva Academy’s students discuss after a course Geneva Academy’s students discuss after a course

We attract some of the most experienced and academically qualified students from all over the world. They share their expertise and discuss pressing concerns in the fields of international humanitarian law, human rights protection, international criminal law and transitional justice.

A Diverse and Multicultural Community

In order to make educational opportunities accessible to all, a good proportion of our students receive a partial or full scholarship. This allows talented young people with limited means to study at the Geneva Academy.

Access to a Broad Range of Services

As we are a joint centre of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and the University of Geneva, our students are registered as students of both institutions and therefore benefit from their services, including access to sports and cultural activities, careers advice and language courses.

LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights: What our Students Say

18 December 2017

In this interview, Quazi Omar Foysal, currently enrolled in our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, tells us about the programme, teaching, life in Geneva and what he plans to do after.

The Geneva Academy provided me with the chance to get in touch with very distinguished international law practitioners and academics. It was a unique opportunity to meet the people behind the books I used to study and have discussions with them on a daily basis.
