Why should I study here?

Established in Switzerland in 1978, Webster University Geneva is an accredited American university campus that offers high-quality programs in English at the undergraduate (bachelor level) and graduate (masters) level. Webster provides a broad Liberal Arts approach to teaching in the culturally-rich context of Switzerland, and the University has become an important member of the community and spirit that comprise Genève Internationale.

What are the admissions criteria?

The application includes transcripts, an essay and recommendation letters. All applicants must submit a copy of their passport and applicants from non-anglophone countries or high schools must submit English proficiency test scores. The application process is Rolling Admissions, meaning that you may apply until the week before classes.

What is student life like?

On campus, you will be surrounded by a collegial and supportive community that provides individual attention to your academic needs and extra-curricular interests. Our residential campus is located in a spacious, park-like setting within sight of Lake Geneva and the Alps. On campus, you will discover tech-equipped classrooms, a library, computer labs, a cafeteria, and various staff offices, including student affairs, academic advising, and career services, to support your whole university experience. 

In addition, the Living and Learning Center, which is accessible to those living on campus and to those who commute, includes a student lounge and game area, plus a newly renovated fitness center.  It hosts the 'Commons Room' for larger campus events, from panels and guest speakers to events organized by student clubs.  Campus traditions include annual events like our Global Thanksgiving (November) and Webster's Got Talent competition (February). 

There is a local train station at the foot of campus (Genthod-Bellevue station is 100m from the Residence Hall), with an 8-minute train to Geneva city center (every 15 minutes).

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
