The total amount of the tuition fees for the 2020-2021 academic year is CHF 25,000 net of bank charges. Living cost and study visits are not included in these fees.

The candidates are officially admitted to the Programme and enrolled as students at the University of Geneva (binding registration) only upon the payment of CHF 3,000 within the deadline set in the letter of admission. The amount of CHF 3,000 is deducted from the total tuition fees (CHF 25,000) which must be paid either in full or in two installments.

If a candidate withdraws before the start of the Programme, the advanced paid amount will be refunded, except for a flat fee of CHF 1,000 which will be withheld for administrative expenses.

Tuition fees cover: tuition, registration, examinations.


A range of different scholarships are offered to help cover tuition fees.

All candidates to the “European and International Governance” Master Programme are eligible to apply for scholarships or financial aid. Scholarship requests for incoming participants must be submitted along with the candidate’s application. Financial needs are not taken into account in the evaluation of a candidate’s application for admission. The Programme Directors evaluate only the scholarship or financial aid requests of admitted applicants.

If awarded, the amount of financial aid is calculated according to the applicant’s financial situation, as reported in the scholarship and financial aid application form. Applicants are encouraged to provide as much information as possible, to give a complete picture of their financial situation, as well as that of their parents and/or spouse.
