Topics of Global Significance

Geneva Summer Schools at the University of Geneva foster exchange and collaboration on topics of global significance and connect people of all backgrounds in an international city at the heart of Europe.

We offer a selection of short courses during the summer in a variety of fields such as International Law, Humanitarian Action, Children Rights, Global Health, Diversity, SDGs, Digital and IP Law, among others.

Knowledge Sharing

The summer school has proven itself since its beginning to be an invaluable program for knowledge sharing between our professionals from International Organizations and NGOs based in Geneva and our university community.

Academic lectures will be combined with visits, round tables and debates in connection with experts of leading Geneva-based international organizations, as well as top global non-profit institutions and companies.

Innovative Learning Opportunites

We are committed to bringing together faculties and students from different universities from all over the world to strengthen ties beyond academics and to develop innovative learning opportunities.

All classes are taught in English by faculty from the University of Geneva and other renowned institutions. Our high quality academic courses provide a global perspective on interdisciplinary subjects.
