Exchange Programmes


The international nature of the Graduate Institute’s mission prompted the development of a significant network of academic partnerships throughout the world and concluded exchange programme agreements with many prestigious partners.

The main aims of these exchange agreements are:

  • To provide Graduate Institute “outgoing” students with the opportunity of attending a partner institution for one or two semesters and benefit from their academic resources while immersing into the local life and surroundings of that institution. Outgoing exchange students can earn up to 30 ECTS credits towards their study programmes.
  • To provide “incoming” students from our partner institutions with the opportunity to benefit from the Institute’s expertise and its unique setting in International Geneva. Incoming students can attend the Graduate Institute for one or two semesters and gain credits towards their study programmes at home.
