International Relations Office


International Relations (IR) is a subdivision of the Rector’s Office at the University of Geneva (the UNIGE). Its main task is the implementation and development of international policy and the promotion of the university’s internationalisation process.

IR offers the university community support with exchange agreements (negotiating agreements, managing mobility), international processes (negotiating, drawing up and monitoring international agreements / Erasmus) and the reception of delegations.

The IR Office fosters and ensures the continuity of the university’s international policy in accordance with guidelines set out by the Rector's Office and in consultation with its faculty partners (strategy). It supports the UNIGE’s international coordination and occasionally represents the university abroad.

IR supports international recruitment and promotes the university's international image as a global centre of excellence in teaching and research.
