Founded in 1559 by Jean Calvin, the University of Geneva (UNIGE) is dedicated to thinking, teaching, dialogue and research. With 16’000 students of more than 140 different nationalities, it is Switzerland’s second largest university.
Just like the city of Geneva itself, the university enjoys a strong international reputation, both for the quality of its research (it ranks among the top institutions among the League of European Research Universities) and the excellence of its education. This acclaim has been won in part due to its strong ties to many national and international Geneva-based organizations, such as the World Health Organization, the International Telecommunications Union, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
To pursue the acquisition of fundamental knowledge through research. Where a research field may lead to practical spin-offs, the University supports the related applied research. The University is involved in most cutting-edge sectors and has been active in multi- and interdisciplinary research for several years.

The ‘Successful study’ workshops support students in their academic work by providing them with tools to enhance their note-taking skills, improve their time management, better prepare for exams, and memorize strategically.
