Every first-year class is taught in French and English. In the second and third years, classes are taught in either one language or the other. This allows all our students to develop the professional language skills essential for the job market – especially in an international environment like Geneva.
At the beginning of the first year, we recommend B1 level in your “weak” language and require B2 level in your “strong” language.
