Required proof of admission

When a proof of admission in the field applied for at UNIGE is required (according to the "guide"), you must provide certification that you obtained entry into such a program at a university (recognized by UNIGE) in the country where the secondary studies diploma was earned. Only a proof of admission for the same year of application as at UNIGE is accepted. Attestation for distance studies cannot be taken into account.

Example: An applicant applying for a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics must provide, if the proof of admission is required, an attestation of admission to a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at a university recognized by UNIGE in the country where he or she earned their upper-secondary studies diploma.

In the case of applications to several programs, as many proofs of admission to the program in question at the UNIGE, from a university and a program recognized by the UNIGE in the country where the secondary qualification was obtained, are required.

Faculty-specific requirements

For the Bachelor’s Degree in Multilingual Communication (Faculty of Translation and Interpreting): this attestation is not required except in cases where, as stipulated in the enrollment conditions, it replaces an average below our requirements (e.g., in Germany).

For the following Bachelor’s programs at UNIGE, disciplines similar to those of the Bachelor’s program applied for are accepted:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Theology (Faculty of Protestant Theology): proof of admission to a program in Theology or Human Sciences.
  • Bachelor’s degree in International Relations (BARI) (Global Studies Institute): proof of admission from one of the following fields:
    • International Relations
    • Law
    • History
    • Political Science
    • Economics
    • Sociology
    • Geography

Please note: given the interdisciplinary nature of the BARI, a proof of admission to any other field of study/program recognized by UNIGE in the country where the secondary studies diploma was earned will also be accepted.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems and Service Science (Computer Science Centre): proof of admission for a program in computer science or IT systems.
