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.

MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law: What our Students Say

15 January 2019

In this interview, Anthoula Bourolias, currently enrolled in the Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ), tells us about the programme and life in Geneva.

The Geneva Academy provided an excellent, well-balanced and thought-provoking academic experience, which challenged my thinking on a wide range of topics and gave me an excellent base in human rights and refugee law that I fall back on every day in my work.
