Fees & Financing
The cost of the DPP is as follows:
The DPP programme is benefiting from subsidies granted by the SDC (Swiss Development and Cooperation Agency), the Canton of Geneva and other institutions. Considering that these subsidies are limited, they do not allow to cover the total fees of all participants. Therefore, besides the quality of your application file, your personal financial contribution (including that of your organization or third party) will be taken into account by the Admission Committee. A minimum of CHF 2'000 of participation to tuition fees is compulsory.
Tuition fees (CHF 18'500)
They include teaching costs, supervision, course materials, facilities, interpretation costs, administration and coordination.
Logistic fees (CHF 6'500)
They include the following services:
Please note that the logistic fees of CHF 6'500 don't include the following services that you have to organize and take at your expenses:
For Swiss and other 'Northern' candidates, specific arrangements are taken. Please, contact Stéphanie Roy Michael (022 / 908 43 86).
Once admitted to the programme, you will receive an invoice. Payment may be made online through our online electronic system or by bank transfer to:
Bank name: UBS SA, Rue du Rhône 8, 1204 Geneva, Switzerland
Please note that payments can only be received in Swiss Francs.
Once admitted, a first instalment of CHF 2'000 is required as soon as possible to confirm your enrolment in the programme. The balance is to be paid in accordance with the conditions in the invoice. Payment can be done in instalments. For accounting and final admission purposes, the full amount must be paid by 30 June 2013. Failure to pay the total fees will lead to exclusion from the programme.
If you withdraw from the programme, please note that no refund will be done for the first instalment of CHF 2'000 and any expenses incurred at the moment of the withdrawal.
