University of Geneva
The University of Geneva
(UNIGE) is an institution devoted to research, teaching and dialogue. It is the site of academic creativity and the transmission of knowledge.
Since its foundation in 1559 the UNIGE has developed ever higher ethical standards and steadily increased in quality and the will to innovation. The UNIGE also shares the international calling of its host city, Geneva, a centre of international and multicultural activities with a venerable cosmopolitan tradition. Its desire to expand its collaboration with partner institutions and broaden its appeal to researchers and students from around the world has made the UNIGE a "globalised university", a meeting place for academic disciplines and various cultures, and a forum for ideas.
The exchange agreement between King's and The University of Geneva allows for up to 2 FYE places for undergraduate and postgraduate exchange. This equates to 2 students going for a full academic year OR 4 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two.
Students can select modules from the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting and recently added Faculty of Letters. Students only selecting modules within the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting will be restricted to just one semester at the university. All students intending to study at UNIGE for just the first semester should refer to the 'Additional Information' section below.
Important: Final decision on your application rests entirely with the host institution and students outside the French department will need to obtain a 60 percent in their end of year exams in order to be able to go on the exchange programme.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
