To study at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and be admitted to the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting (FTI), you must:

  • Fulfill UNIGE's requirements to enroll in an MA programme.
  • Fulfill the FTI's admission conditions

What are the admission conditions?

Admission will be based on your application file. You must meet the following requirements:

Qualifications:

You must hold a:

  • BA in multilingual communication from the FTI
  • BA in multilingual communication or translation from another university
  • BA in communication
  • BA in linguistics
  • BA in computer science
  • BA in humanities
  • Another university diploma that is deemed to be equivalent

Previous courses:

You are required to have passed at least  one course in language engineering, translation technology or information and communications technology during your previous studies.

Language skills:

You must have at least a C1 level in English under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, and a B2 level in French.

Unlike the MA programmes in translation and conference interpreting, you don’t have to choose a language combination since you will not be required to take any translation classes.

Your application file

Your file will be reviewed by a committee in our Faculty. You will be informed of their decision no later than 20 June 2020.

What do you have to do to apply?

Please note that

you may only be admitted to the FTI if:

* the FTI accepts your application file

and

* the University accepts your enrollment application

Applicants must therefore go through two different application processes. If you do not follow this procedure, you will not be able to study at UNIGE.


  • How to apply to the FTI

Applying online to the FTI

- from 7 October 2019 to 28 February 2020 for applicants with nationalities that are required to have a visa for a stay of more than 90 days (irrespective of your current place of residence, unless you hold a Swiss residence permit that is valid past 30 April)

- from 7 October 2019 to 30 April 2020 for applicants who do not need a visa for a stay of more than 90 days

a) Begin by setting up your ORISIS account (you can use this login for the whole application process).

b) Using your ORISIS account, you can apply on the FTI's online platform. See the list of documents that you need to prepare and scan in order to apply.

 (If you are already enrolled at UNIGE, please use the username and password that you created when first setting up your ORISIS account; it is likely linked to your private email address. If you are unable to access your account, please create a new one using your @etu.unige.ch address))

Once you have filled out the online application, you will receive an email confirming that your application is being reviewed by the committee.


  • How to enroll at UNIGE

Fill out the University of Geneva's online enrollment application, using your ORISIS login details. You must then print it out and send it to the Admissions Services

- from 6 January to 29 February 2020 for applicants with nationalities that are required to have a visa for a stay of more than 90 days (irrespective of your current place of residence, unless you hold a Swiss residence permit that is valid past 30 April)

- from 6 January to 30 April 2020 for applicants who do not need a visa for a stay of more than 90 days

Please note that you should send off your enrollment application even if you have not yet been informed off the FTI committee's decision. 

If you are already enrolled and studying at UNIGE, make a request to change faculties or apply to register in a second faculty by the given deadline.

If you have already been unenrolled, or will be unenrolled before the beginning of your first semester at the FTI, please request to be reenrolled before the deadline.

Being enrolled at the University means that the University has given a student permission to register in a faculty and take the courses, seminars and workshops necessary to obtain a university degree. You cannot study at the FTI without being enrolled.

The tuition fee is CHF 500 per semester of study for both Swiss and foreign students. There is also a fee of CHF 65 for your UNIGE enrollment application.
