Other information

Successful candidates are expected to be self-directed, and will need to negotiate their own study arrangements. Bursary holders are normally expected to arrange their study visit to Geneva so that at least two weeks overlap with the normal semesters of the Graduate Institute.

Please note that successful candidates are normally expected to take their awards during the academic year period, rather than vacation.

Students will be responsible for their own accommodation in Geneva.

Advice and support can be obtained by contacting the office of the Europaeum Secretariat.
