Hi dear, there are about 16 slots for Geneva Academy students each year. Application for accomodation starts from May 2019. But since you are applying for scholarship, it should cover accomodation too if you are awarded. Hope this helps?

Thanks Michlj. Must all the documents be uploaded in pdf format? If you went to a school where the language of instruction was English how do you prove that?

Hey everyone, I'm also in the process of applying but I am struggling with my personal statement. Does anyone have some tips on what would be the best way to write it and what to or not to include?
Keeping my fingers crossed for all the people applying here!

Hello everyone!

I am applying for the LLM programme. I would like to know how I can submit a recommendation letter without uploading it myself. It is customary in my country for recommendation letters to remain confidential. Hence, one of my referees prefers that he uploads it himself. Do you know how I can get around this problem?

Thanks.

Hello! Thank you for responding.

My problem, however, is the fact that I am too shy to ask for a copy of the recommendation letter. It is customary in my country NOT to have access to the letter itself. It should remain confidential.

I did not have problems with other schools because they provide platforms where the referee can upload the recommendation letter. In fact, I waived my right to access the letter. This ensures total candor in assessing the applicants (and I'm pretty confident that I will have a strong recommendation letter from my references).

I wonder if a similar workaround exists for the Geneva Academy? Something like direct sending of thr letter via email to the Academy itself.

Thanks!
