The Administrative Assistant, the first contact point for students, provides information on regulations and administration, monitoring the curriculum and compliance with deadlines, and handling requests for courses outside the Institute or outside the study plan.
The Graduate Institute Student Assosciation (GISA) is a point of contact for students’ social and academic concerns and facilitates the interaction between the administration of the Interdisciplinary Programmes and the student body. GISA offers an array of social and cultural activities. It communicates effectively and constantly with all Institute faculty and staff. GISA promotes student exchanges to foster a collegial and lively environment in and outside of the classroom.
The Mentorship Programme Programme is designed to support incoming Master in International Affairs and Master in Development Studies programme students with their transition to life at the Institute and in Geneva. The mentors assist students with planning courses, accessing student services, understanding administrative processes, getting to know the Graduate Institute and Geneva, and providing tips for a successful start to the academic year.
