The famous Jet d'Eau shoots up into the clear blue sky while young people cross the different causeways to reach their internships or study abroad programs.

The city heralds the eager foreign students who are ready to experience the wonders of the city.

This city is Geneva or the city of Paix. As the city of Paix, it contains NGOs and the Palais des Nations (United Nations), where international diplomats, NGO representatives, and interns discuss worldwide international issues that range from human rights to nuclear disarmament.

Due to the large concentration of international organizations and NGOs, it is imperative that you seize any opportunity to study abroad here in Geneva. Your experience in Geneva will help prepare you for a career in international relations.

So, if you are interested in studying abroad and taking a plunge to jumpstart your career, then you can either contact your international study abroad office or apply to a Swiss university. Most of professors are worldwide experts, who regularly provide their insights to diplomats at the United Nations.

Are you still unsure on whether you should take the plunge and come to Geneva? Well, let me tell you about my experience in Geneva. I moved to Geneva in 2010 to study Political Science at a Swiss school. The experience was fantastic and here’s why:

  1. Exposure to a cosmopolitan environment, where I met students from literally different parts of the world (Ethiopia to India). This unique environment enabled me to develop life skills by challenging me to work and collaborate with colleagues from different parts of the world.
  2. Exposure to International Geneva When I was a student, I had an opportunity to work with a NGO on international nuclear disarmament negotiations and observe high-level security discussions.

The opportunities are endless in Geneva.

Could you imagine taking an internship related to your interests in international relations while studying?

Your resume will substantially improve, and you will gain the necessary experiences for many employers.

Some disadvantages

People often perceive Geneva as an expensive city. While it is true that Geneva is one of the most expensive cities in the world, it is possible to minimize your expenses and survive.

Let me explain to you how I did it!

I found a small apartment in a student-housing building. I further itemized my expenses and created monthly budgets. I also occasionally shopped in France, where the prices were substantially cheaper than in Switzerland.

Another major detriment is that French is the official language. Fear NOT!

There are hundreds of English speakers and most people speak and understand English. Therefore, you will not have any problems.

So, why not take the plunge! Jump-start your career and study in Geneva!

Bonne Chance!
