SUPPORT THE ACTION TAKEN BY THE UNIVERSITY OF GENEVA IN FAVOR OF THE STUDENTS AND RESEARCHERS IMPACTED BY THE WAR IN UKRAINE

Since the crisis began, the University of Geneva has been in high demand from numerous students and researchers who would like to pursue their academic career. UNIGE has developed some opportunities for these people notably through the Horizon académique program, which since 2016 has offered the most efficient program of academic integration in Switzerland for people with asylum status. UNIGE possesses ample expertise in terms of social integration and can rapidly respond to the needs of the students and researchers impacted by the war in Ukraine.

The Horizon académique program is supported by the federal and regional authorities, as well as private partners. However, in view of the significant needs identified, we call for your solidarity to insure a sustainable integration.
