Webster University Geneva

Geneva, Switzerland
Established in 1978, our park-like campus is just minutes away from Geneva – an historic center of international cooperation hosting more than 270 international and non-governmental organizations, as well as 170 permanent diplomatic representations. The city offers a large variety of resources and opportunities, while Webster’s international campus community – 679 students from 93 countries in 2010 – will further expand your horizons both professionally and personally.

About

Geneva and the surrounding countryside bring added dimensions to your Webster education. Given the presence of the United Nations and other major international organizations, many important international businesses and the largest private banking center in the world, Webster students have the opportunity to take advantage of the resources offered by these institutions to augment classroom learning. And when it comes to recreation, whether skiing, hiking, climbing, or cycling, the Alps offer some of the best sporting terrain in the world, and they are right at your doorstep!

Geneva is situated in the heart of Europe so when you want to immerse yourself in the culture of other European cities, places like Paris, Rome, Madrid, Vienna, Berlin, London and Amsterdam are all accessible in less than two hours by air, and rail service in and out of Geneva is first rate.

And how about the rest of the world? When you are admitted to Webster University Geneva, you are admitted to an international university network where the world is your campus. You are able to study in London, Leiden, or Vienna if your goal is to stay in Europe; but opportunities also await you in Thailand, China, Japan, Central or South America and the United States. I invite you to join the Webster University community of learners and engage in an international educational experience without parallel.
