Activity summary:

Geneva, held to be the smallest of the large world capitals, is home to more than 300 international and non-governmental organisations and permanent missions. This multicultural environment is mirrored at the University of Geneva as one-third of the student body comes from abroad, and it maintains close links with academic institutions the world over. This partnership takes different forms: student exchanges, faculty exchanges, joint training and research programmes, as well as our participation in international conferences and events.
From the time of its creation in 1559 by Jean Calvin, right up to the recent discovery by University astrophysicians of extrasolar planets, the University of Geneva has continued to grow and develop in a manner commensurate with its longstanding tradition of excellence and its international approach.
