Rigorously selected, our students are bright, culturally open and driven by the ambition to face the challenges of today’s world.

Our students are represented by two associations:

The Graduate Institute Student Association (GISA)

The principal mission of the association is to ensure that all students pass enriching years at the Institute. Every student is a member of the association and is welcome to participate in all of its activities.

Association of Assistants of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (ADAEID)

The Assistant’s Association represents students who work as teaching or research assistants at the Institute.
